Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study?
FDOT developed the PD&E process to ensure that projects receiving federal funds follow federal guidelines and policies. A PD&E Study is a blending of engineering, environmental assessments and public involvement activities. The process is a set of procedures used by engineers and planners to develop transportation improvements that incorporate community and agency input, minimize effects to the natural and social environment, and provide viable engineering and transportation solutions.
What is the objective of the study?
The goal of this study is to develop concepts that meet these expectations, minimize social, economic and environmental effects, incorporate community input and receive agreement from local, state and federal agencies.
What are the study limits?
The limits of the study area extend along SR 951 from Business Circle South to Magnolia Pond Drive / City Gate Drive. The study area limits also include the section of Davis Boulevard (SR 84) from Market Street to Tollgate Boulevard. Click here for a downloadable version of the Project Location map.
Are there other projects planned for this area?
You may be aware of upcoming roadway improvements in the area. Collier County will begin widening of Davis Boulevard (SR 84) and Collier Boulevard (SR 951) in the fall of 2011. Additionally, FDOT will be constructing ramp improvements to the I-75 / SR 951 (Collier Boulevard) interchange beginning in late fall of this year or early winter 2012. The study will compliment these projects by providing a concept that incorporates and builds on these improvements.

How can I obtain the latest study materials?
The latest materials will be available on the Project Materials section of the website above. We encourage you to check back regularly.
When will the study be completed?
The study began in May 2011 and is expected to be complete in Spring 2014. You can find the schedule here.
When will the project be constructed?
The project is currently in the PD&E Study phase. After the PD&E Study is approved the
project moves into the Design Phase, which is fully funded for fiscal year 2015. The right-of-way
acquisition and construction phases are not currently funded.The graphic below depicts the standard roadway development process.
