• Active Study

Public Involvement

We invite you to get involved! The public plays an important role in the project development and decision-making process of this study. There are multiple ways to get involved—call, write, or email us – see the Contact Information page for further details. There will also be a number of opportunities to participate in person, including:

  • Online Survey – An online survey was available from June 2017 through August 2017. The online survey was a tool used by the project team to understand corridor issues and concerns  held by area residents, workers and visitors to the corridor.
  • Visioning Charrettes – The project team hosted three charrettes in June 2017. The charrettes were 2-hour, interactive sessions that focused on defining the vision for the corridor. Charrette attendees provided input on existing and anticipated issues and success along the project corridor. Information collected at the charrettes was used to develop the Guiding Principles presented at the Visioning Workshops in December 2017.
  • Visioning Workshop – Corridor Visioning Workshops were held on December 5th and 7th, 2017. At the Visioning Workshops the project team reported out on the findings from the visioning charrettes and asked for input from the public in order to refine the Vision for the corridor. Links to the Visioning Workshop materials are available below.
  • Corridor Studies Alternatives Workshop – The Corridor Studies Alternatives Workshop was held on September 19, 2018. At the Workshop, the project team presented near-term and long-term improvements and asked for input from the public to refine the proposed alternatives. Links to the Corridor Studies Alternatives Workshop materials are available below.

Send us your comments and ideas to help us define the vision for Alternate US 19, and determine the most appropriate conceptual design alternatives for this portion of Alternate US 19. You can also invite us to speak at one of your own meetings! Please click here to request an update on this project.

Project Advisory Group

In addition to residents and users of the corridor and surrounding neighborhoods, our team will work with a Project Advisory Group (PAG), which includes staff members from the jurisdictions with an interest in the corridor. The PAG will meet at key points throughout the study to collaborate with the project team to ensure that the corridor vision and improvement alternatives are well-coordinated with local planning efforts and community goals.
