Feasiblity study for River of Grass Greenway (ROGG) included in FDOT WorkProgram for 2011/12
Friends of the ROGG,
Great news! A feasibility study for 16 miles of “ROGG-west” will be included in FDOT program next year.
At the December 10th meeting the Collier County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) demonstrated their support for the ROGG by voting to include the ROGG-west PD&E study (between CR92 and SR29) in FY 2011/12 of the FDOT work program, at an estimated cost of $3 million. This vote was opposite of recommendations of the County transportation staff, as well as two of three advisory committees (TAC, CAC). The price tag for the ROGG feasibility study has increased significantly, which led County staff to question the most appropriate use of limited funds.
-- THANKS to everyone who contacted MPO members.
-- THANKS to the Collier MPO for their support of the ROGG
