NORTH PORT — The Florida Department of Transportation District 1 is holding a public information meeting for the I-75 design project from south of Toledo Blade Boulevard to Sumter Boulevard in Sarasota County. The public is invited to attend the meeting anytime from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday) May 15 at the George Mullen Activity Center, off Sumter near North Port City Hall.

The meeting is an open house with no formal presentation. People attending the meeting may review the project displays and aerial photographs, and speak one-on-one with the project team members. FDOT officials said they welcome and appreciate everyone’s participation in this project. FDOT is preparing design plans to: widen I-75 four to six lanes within the existing median of I-75, construction minor on-ramp improvements to the Toledo Blade and Sumter interchanges, and add sidewalks along Toledo Blade and Sumter within the interchange limits. FDOT will not require any additional right of way for the project. The department estimates construction to begin during the summer of 2015. More specific information about the construction schedule will be available after the contractor is hired. For more information, contact project manager Kati Sherrard with the Florida Department of Transportation at 863-519-2990 or at
