Background Discussion

During a recent Board of County Commissioners' regular meeting, several items such as speed limits and school zones along Rye Road were discussed. At this meeting, staff was directed to present existing conditions and future projects along Rye Road in a work session.

During this work session, staff will discuss the existing and recommended speed limits based on a traffic study, existing school zone in front of Gene Witt Elementary School, and the recently removed school zone at the 147th Street East intersection due to the removal of crossing guards by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. Planned geometry as outlined in the Comprehensive Plan will also be discussed.

Staff will also discuss the future Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) projects along Rye Road.

Lastly, county staff has requested the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) staff to provide an update for the State Road (SR) 64 and Rye Road intersection.
