Contact and/or Presenter Information
Clarke Davis, Transportation Planning Division Manager
Adopt "Table 1. Manatee County 2018 Transportation Project Priorities" and authorize staff to transmit Table 1 to the Metropolitan Planning Organization as part of the 2018 Work Program development process.
Section 125.01, F.S., Powers and Duties, County Commission
Section 339.175(6), F.S., Powers, Duties, and Responsibilities, MPO
The purpose of this item is to request Board action on 2018 transportation project priorities and their rankings.
The Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) requests that each agency review and rank its project priorities prior to MPO Board adoption. This report provides the staff-recommended projects and their rankings for 2018. In general, new projects selected for funding from this list will appear in FY23 or FY24 of the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) five-year program approved by the legislature in 2019.
Projects and Rankings
Table 1 shows proposed 2018 project priorities for the several funding programs available through the Metropolitan Planning Organization and State. They are ranked in staff's recommended priority order. At the top of the list, staff placed the County's highest priority major projects for DeSoto Bridge and 15th Street East reconstruction.
These are followed by the Central Manatee Network Alternatives Analysis (CMNAA) and projects from the Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) "set-aside" funding.
The balance is presented in order according to 2017 rank as provided by the MPO. In 2017, the MPO Board adopted the priority methodology after MPO staff developed them in coordination with local governments and their Technical Advisory Committee representatives. The methods were developed to provide consistency with Federal funding legislation. While ranking adjustments can be made, the projects are theoretically presented in the order they are most likely to successfully compete for funding.
Staff recommends Board adoption of the 2018 project priorities and their rankings as shown on Table 1.
