FL DOT http://wuwf.org en Work To Widen U.S. Highway 98 On Hold http://wuwf.org/post/work-widen-us-highway-98-hold <p>Florida’s Department of Transportation is busy these days preparing a long-term plan to widen U.S. 98 to six lanes. But any such project remains well down the road.</p><p>DOT’s Ian Satter says the work is aimed at the portion of highway from Avalon Boulevard to Gulf Islands National Seashore. The rights-of-way acquisitions are part of the agency’s Five Year Work Program -- which has U.S. 98 improvements planned for next year, 2016 and 2017.</p><p>But when it comes to FDOT’s budget to build the additional lanes, he says for now, they’re running on empty.</p> Tue, 15 Apr 2014 20:27:11 +0000 Dave Dunwoody 7784 at http://wuwf.org Work To Widen U.S. Highway 98 On Hold
