Background Discussion

Manatee County installed stop signs at the rail road crossing  in accordance with Stipulation of Parties for the Closure of 69th Street East Highway-Rail Grade Crossing, Crossing Number 624600-C, and the Opening of a New Crossing on 69th Street East.

During the final inspection of the 69th Street East Rail Road Crossing, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) requested County to replace the stop signs with yield signs due to low train traffic observed.

An amendment to the Stipulation of Parties is necessary to incorporate the FDOT request into the agreement prior to the completion of the FDOT inspection punch list.

The amendment needs to be signed by Florida Power & Light Company  (FPL), County, and FDOT.  Thus, three originals are submitted for signature.

FPL has been contacted and is in support of this amendment.
