US Hwy 98 East John Singletary Bridge


The proposed improvements will replace the functionally obsolete bridge over the Peace River. A PD&E reevaluation / Section 4(f) evaluation is currently underway due to design changes since the completion of the PD&E study in 2018. The attached newsletter provides a summary of this work. The newsletter is being distributed to public officials and residents in lieu of a public hearing.  The Department is not holding public meetings at this time due to concerns over the current health crisis. 

FDOT is requesting public comment on the proposed impacts to the Section 4(f) protected property, Fort Meade Recreation Area, during the design process of our transportation projects. Please ensure that your organization’s comments are submitted by July 31, 2020, so that any concerns can be addressed in a timely manner.

All comments and concerns should be addressed to Mr. Ryan Weeks, the Department’s Project Manager, at 863-519-2837, through email at, or by mail at P.O. Box 1249, Bartow FL 33831.

Thank you for your continued participation in improving Florida’s transportation system.
