As we indicated in our letter of April 10, 1991, the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension is of most concern to the Department. In the referenced letter we listed two studies which would provide additional information about the validity of the Extension. It was our position that the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Extension from the Trafficways Plan prior to the completion of the studies is premature. District staff has made substantial progress in the completion of the first study - a buildout travel forecast analysis. Since this study is not complete and preliminary data found within it indicate that a facility will be required in the Extension Corridor, we continue to believe that any action resulting in its deletion is premature.

As you know, Palm Beach County has reduced the University Parkway right-of-way in Palm Beach County to 120' and changed its designation to a surface arterial. It is suggested that rather then removing .the Sawgrass Extension from the Trafficways Plan in Broward County that it be reduced to a surface arterial to be compatible with the intent in Palm Beach County. The attached print shows a number of suggested alignments which would miss the proposed airport site. It is my feeling that this continuity would better 'serve future traffic in this area with destinations to palm Beach County and to the north. Also, this would be compatible with the Florida Department of Transportation's Intra -State Highway System. Your cooperation is appreciated.

PLANNIN3 CCNSMERATICNS On September 27, 1990 the Broward County Planning Council, at the request of the City of Parkland, initiated amendments to the Broward Canty Trafficways Plan for Pine Island Road, Nob Hill Road, and the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension. The Planning Council deferred this item at its April 25, 1991 public hearing. Council staff review of the proposed amendments has focused on the assessment of traffic needs at buildout and coordination with the plans of affected landowners and agencies. Staff spent several weeks updating the buildout data for the northwest Broward County area and acquired data from Palm Beach County in order to facilitate accurate modeling. Preliminary y modeling runs have been completed by the Office of Planning Transportation Planning Division. Staff has coordinated and met on several occasions with the major property owner, Florida National Properties, Palm Beach County, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Treasure Coast and South Florida Regional Planning Cawncils and the cities of Parkland and Coral Springs. County divisions in the review process include Aviation, Engineering, Traffic Erngineering, and Transportation Planning. Discussions concerning modeling, proper alignments and connections into Palm Beach County, future land use and access to the planned airport site have been complex and extensive. As a result of these discussions, an alternate proposal for the area was submitted by the Landowner in February. Completion of the FDOT buildout study for the northwest Broward County/Southwest Palm Beach County area is expected in the first week of July. This modeling should clarify the network rk needs in northwest Broward County and enable the various parties to assess the potential impacts of any change to the Trafficways Plan. The City of Parkland reconsidered its request at its commission meeting on June 19 and tabled consideration of the iters pending receipt of the FDOT study. FDOT and Bx ward County have also requested deferral of this item. Staff concurs with the requests for deferral of this item, and public hearing its 2 through 4, to allow additional time for review and analysis. Staff will work with the various parties throughout July and August to finalize any roadway realignments which may be indicated by the study. ffi mum TRAFFICMAYS PLAN Amendment to Nob Hill Road I.

Your letter has been forwarded to this office for reply. Palm Beach County's Thoroughfare. Right -Of -Way Protection Map does not show Pine Island Road or Nobb Hill Road crossing the County line. We, therefore, have no comments on these two roadways. Our position concerning University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension into Palm Beach County is as stated in the attached letter dated April 29, 1991. I will plan to attend the June 27, 1991 Public Hearing representing Palm Beach County's position concerning the proposed deletion of the Sawgrass Extension into Palm Beach County from the Broward County Trafficways Plan.

Realignment of Pine Island Road 120' Trafficway between the Palm Beach County Line and the Sawgrass Expressway. Realigrmlent of Nob Hill Road 120' Trafficway between the Sawgrass Expressway and University Drive. Realignment of Nob Hill Road 120' Trafficway between the north of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension and Nob Hill Road. The above four amendments were deferred at the April 1991 public hearing to allow FDOT to include results from their regional modeling efforts. Presently FDOT is continuing its modeling efforts and expects to have scene limited results by the June 27, 1991 public hearing. However, the Transportation Planning Division recommends that action on above amendments be deferred to August, 1991 to allow for FDOT to complete their assignment and for comprehensive local and County review.

As we indicated in our letter of April 10, 1991, the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension is of most concern to the Department. In the referenced letter we listed two studies which would provide additional information about the validity of the Extension. It was our position that the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Extension from the Trafficways Plan prior to the completion of the studies is premature. District staff has made substantial progress in the completion of the first study - a buildout travel forecast analysis. Since this study is not complete and preliminary data found within it indicate that a facility will be required in the Extension Corridor, we continue to believe that any action resulting in its deletion is premature.

FLANK= CONSIDERATIONS On September 27, 1990 the Broward County Planning Council, at the request of the City of Parkland, initiated amendments to the Broward County Trafficways Plan for Pine Island Road, Nob Hill Road, and the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension. The Planning Council deferred this item at its April 25, 1991 public hearing. Council staff review of the proposed amendments has focused on the assessment of traffic needs at buildout and coordination with the plans of affected landowners and agencies. Staff spent several weeks updating the buildout data for the northwest Broward County area and acquired data from Palm Beach CO unty in order to facilitate accurate modeling. Preliminary modeling runs have been completed by the Office of Planning Transportation Planning Division. Staff has coordinated and met on several occasions with the major property owner, Florida National Properties, Palm Beach County, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Treasure Coast and South Florida Regional Planning Councils and the cities of Parkland and Coral Springs. County divisions in the review process include Aviation, Engineering, Traffic Engineering, and Transportation Planning. Discussions concerning modeling, proper alignments and connections into Palm Beach county, future land use and access to the planned airport site have been complex and extensive. As a result of these discussions, an alternate proposal for the area was submitted by the landowner in February. Completion of the FDOr buildout study for the northwest Broward County/Southwest Palm Beach County area is expected in the first week of July. This modeling should clarify the network needs in northwest Broward County and enable the various parties to assess the potential impacts of any change to the Trafficways Plan. The City of Parkland reconsidered its request at its commission meeting on June 19 and tabled consideration of the item pending receipt of the FDOr study. FDOr and Broward Qxmty have also requested deferral of this item. Staff concurs with the requests for deferral of this item, and public hearing items 2, 4, and 5, to allow additional time for review and analysis. Staff will wank with the various parties throughout July and August to finalize any roadway realignments which may be indicated by the study. Amendment to Pine Island Load Pie 2 X.

INTRODUCTION The Florida Department of Transportation, District 4, Transportation Planning Office, in cooperation with Broward and Palm Beach Counties, has conducted a study to determine the future highway needs for Northwest Broward and Southwest Palm Beach Counties. This report documents the findings of that study. A Trafficways Plan amendment proposed by the City of Parkland (subsequently withdrawn) would significantly alter the local network of the study area and, more importantly, remove the corridor for the University Parkway, a proposed limited access expressway. The University Parkway has been proposed for inclusion in the 1992 Florida Transportation Plan (FTP) as a designated corridor and is shown in the approved Broward and Palm Beach County and City of Parkland Comprehensive Plans (Appendix A). The existing traffic projections for this area lacked the accuracy required to make informed decisions and recommendations about the future transportation needs of the area. Recognizing this, the Broward County Planning Council requested (Appendix B) that the Department provide more accurate traffic projections which could be used to evaluate the trafficways amendment request (Appendix B) and, in general, the needs of the study area. It is anticipated that this report will prove beneficial to other agencies interested in the future corridors of the study area. The Department had requested (Appendix B) that any decision on the proposed Trafficways Plan Amendments be postponed until August 1991, when the District's Systems Planning Office anticipated completing this Report. Study Objective This report provides year 2015 traffic projections for four alternative future networks which can be used as a basis for corridor/network decisions in the study area. An assessment of each network and it's ability to serve the area's transportation 1 requirements is presented in the Transportation Analysis section. The Department's recommendations, based on the results of this analysis, are presented in the Conclusions section of this report. 2 II. TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS .Study Area The study area is made up of Northwest Broward County and Southwest Palm Beach County and is roughly bounded by the Sawgrass Expressway to the South, Atlantic Avenue to the North, State Road 7 to the East and the Conservation Area to the West. Figure 1 shows the study area and the existing (1991) network. However, modeling and analysis was not confined to this area and, in fact, examined a much larger area (all of Broward County and the southern portion of Palm Beach County). The study area is naturally divided into northern (Palm Beach County) and southern (Broward County) sub -areas by the Hillsboro Canal (approximately the County border). Existing Conditions The study area is rapidly developing, with large tracts of undeveloped land which are expected to be fully developed during the next 20 to 25 years. The area is primarily residential, most notably the City of Parkland and western Boca Raton area, but also contains large commercial and industrial tracts. In addition, a regional reliever airport and regional Resource Recovery Facility are being considered for the study area. At present, no roads connect the north and south sub- areas (across the Hillsboro Canal) west of State Road 7. All traffic between the northern and southern sub -areas must detour east to State Road 7, which results in increased travel times for the residents of the study area and those desiring to drive through it and substantially increases demand on State Road 7. Future Networks The analysis considered the following four alternatives: "Benchmark" Network, "Dual Arterial Crossing" Network, "University Parkway/Drive" Network, and "Full" Network. All networks are based on Adopted Comprehensive Plans, including the Broward County Trafficways Map, the Palm Beach County Thoroughfare Right -of -Way Protection Map, the City of Parkland Comprehensive Plan, 3 STUDY AREA AND EXISTING NETWORK FIGURE 1 SOURCE: FDOT - DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY, 1911 (41 ATLANTIC AVE. 0 0 w 1- 1- CLINT MOORE RD.

AY f 4 preliminary District analysis, District plans (FTP), discussions with interested parties and knowledge of the area. The "Dual", "Parkway/Drive" and "Full" networks represent, based on the above criteria, three possible alternatives. The "Benchmark" network, which does not include any County line crossings parallel to State Road 7, is not considered a feasible alternative but has been included for comparison and analytical purposes. The "Benchmark" network assumes that no roads west of State Road 7 will cross the county line (Hillsboro Canal). This alternative provides a minimal network which primarily serves the local land uses of the study area (Figure 2). The "Dual" network is similar to the network proposed in the Trafficways Plan Amendment and is shown in Figure 3. This network includes two arterial crossings of the Hillsboro Canal west of State Road 7. The "Parkway/Drive" network includes University Parkway (an expressway) and University Drive (a principle arterial) crossing the Hillsboro Canal and is shown in Figure 4. The final network, "Full", is similar to the "Parkway/Drive" network but includes a third arterial road which crosses the Hillsboro Canal (Figure 5) via Glades Road/Coral Ridge Drive. Socio-economic Data Zonal socio-economic data was provided by Broward and Palm Beach Counties for this analysis. "Buildout" data was available for all of Palm Beach County and NW Broward County (study area) , but not all other areas of Broward County. Therefore the "Urban Model" used year 2010 where "Buildout" data was not available resulting in conservative forecasts. This combination of socio-economic data does not materially change study results because all data in the study area is consistent. The projections obtained in this analysis are representative of a 25 year planning horizon (year 2015 or "buildout") for the study area. The socio-economic data used represents today's "best estimate" of future development, based on future land use plans and does not account for the inevitable rezoning requests for higher intensity uses and density reductions resulting from environmental considerations and site plan requirements. This report assumes the Palm Beach County Agricultural Reserve (located just north of the study area) will remain predominantly agricultural.

In addition, it is important to recognize that a single land usechange in the study area, a regional shopping center for example, could result in much greater local and significantly higher area -wide traffic demand. This study did not focus on land use data and, as previously stated, used data provided by both counties. Systems Modeling (FSUTMS & SERPM) Existing county models, although adequate for most modeling requirements within the county borders, were inadequate for the purposes of this analysis. They are unable to accurately forecast the local interaction between the two counties or the number of through trips which will pass through the study area. To provide accurate projections for the study area a two step modeling approach was used. Although time consuming, it resulted in more accurate projections than would have otherwise been possible. First, the Department's Southeast Regional Planning Model (SERPM), which includes Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, was used to determine the through traffic in the study area. Second, the "Urban Model" (Broward County's standard version of the Florida Standard Urban Model Structure (FSUTMS) modified to include the Boca Raton area of Palm Beach County) was used to develop more detailed local projections. The "Urban Model" was used to run and evaluate the four network alternatives because, with a smaller zone structure, it is more sensitive to local network changes than the SERPM. Alternative Future Network Analysis The results used in this analysis are a set of 2015 projections for the four alternative networks and trip distribution characteristics of the study area. Year 2015 projections, level of service (LOS) and laneage (number of lanes (L) and divided (D), undivided (U) or expressway (Exwy) ) are provided in Appendix C. This information is used to evaluate the ability of the alternative 10 networks to adequately serve the transportation requirements of the area without negative impacts to surrounding communities. A discussion of the findings of this analysis and how it relates to each network alternative follows. Total year 2015 traffic within the study area is estimated to be 411,800 average daily trips (ADT). The study area will generate 339,400 daily trips, or 82% of the total study area traffic (Figure 6). Of the 339,400 daily trips generated in the study area, 284,000 daily trips (84% of the total) will leave (external) the study area (Figure 7) and 55,400 daily trips will stay (internal) inside. This means that traffic generated by the study area will have a major impact on the roads of neighboring communities such as Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Margate and West Boca Raton. Demand in the north/south corridor west of State Road 7 will be 105,000 ADT. In summary, total traffic in the study area will be 411,800 daily trips, the study area will generate 339,400 daily trips and 284,000 daily trips will leave the study area and impact the roadways of surrounding communities. Each network alternative is discussed in detail below: The "Benchmark" network primarily serves land uses (access verses mobility) and does not include any corridors west of State Road 7. Analysis shows a strong north/south demand (at the Hillsboro Canal) of 105,000 ADT within this corridor. This would force traffic to travel around the study area, first to the east and then north or south. This traffic pattern (Figure 8) increases travel time and delay and results in levels of service exceeding local and state standards on the Sawgrass Expressway (LOS F), Wiles Road (LOS E), State Road 7 (LOS F), Lyons Road (LOS F) and Florida's Turnpike (LOS F). Over 53 miles of road (37% of the total) in the study area would not meet level of service standards. The "Benchmark" network demonstrates that the lack of north/south corridors west of State Road 7 causes delays and congestion on the surrounding communities' road network . Strong demand, combined with the results of the "Benchmark" analysis, indicates that additional north/south corridors west of State Road 7 will be required to satisfy traffic demand. 11 COMPOSITION OF TOTAL YEAR 2015 DAILY TRAFFIC IN THE STUDY AREA THROUGH 72400 ( 18% ) LOCAL 339400 (82%) LOCAL - GENERATED BY STUDY AREA THROUGH ORIGIN AND DESTINATION OUTSIDE STUDY AREA SOURCE FDOT DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY. 1901 FIGURE 6 12 DESTINATION OF YEAR 2015 DAILY TRAFFIC GENERATED BY THE STUDY AREA INTERNAL 55400 ( 16% ) EXTERNAL 284000 (84%) INTERNAL - STUDY AREA GENERATED DAILY TRIPS WHICH STAY IN STUDY AREA EXTERNAL - STUDY AREA GENERATED DAILY TRIPS WHICH LEAVE STUDY AREA SOURCE : FDOT DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY. 1991 FIGURE 7 13 PROJECTED YEAR 2015 TRAFFIC PATTERNS OF THE BENCHMARK NETWORK WITHOUT ADDITIONAL NORTH/SOUTH CORRIDORS WEST OF STATE ROAD 7 FIGURE 8 SOURCE: FOOT DISTRICT 4 PLANNING N JULY. 1991 �v P.4 O GONgrc STATE ROAD ATLANTIC AVE. FLORIDA TURNPIKE cr 0 U 14 The "Dual Arterial Crossing" networX is similar to that proposed in the Trafficways Plan Amendment. Annual travel time reductions of the "Dual" network, over the "Benchmark" network, is shown in Figure 9. This network would continue to shift study area demand to the south and east resulting in LOS F on portions of University Drive/Yamato Road, Coral Ridge Drive and State Road 7 with LOS E on the Turnpike and Sample Road (Figure 10). Level of service F on University Drive/Yamato Road results from both through (origin and destination outside study area) and local traffic being forced to use this single corridor. The "Dual Arterial Crossing" network would require truck traffic from the proposed Waste Recovery Facility to use local roads. This network would not satisfy the forecasted 2015 demand since it fails to serve the study area's traffic at acceptable LOS standards. Among the negative factors associated with this network are it shifts traffic to the south and east, it does not separate local and through traffic, it degrades surrounding communities' road networks, it does not provide a logical extension of the Sawgrass Expressway and it is likely to create future "concurrency" problems. The "University Parkway/Drive" network, which includes University Parkway as a four lane expressway, is desirable because it would eliminate the need for the 72,400 through trips to use local roads. In addition, University Parkway would remove truck traffic from local roads. One deficiency would be a small section of University Drive, from Hillsboro Boulevard to Palmetto Park Road, which operates at LOS F as a six lane facility. Overall, however, this network is a feasible alternative because it provides adequate capacity to meet demand, does not shift study area traffic into surrounding, largely developed, communities (Figure 11), separates local and through traffic and provides a logical extension of the Sawgrass Expressway. Figure 9 demonstrates its improvement in operations over the "Benchmark" and "Dual" networks. 15 YEAR 2015 TRAVEL TIME SAVINGS (MILLIONS OF HOURS PER YEAR) \\0\‘ DUAL PARKWAY/DRIVE FULL * IN RELATION TO THE BENCHMARK NETWORK FIGURE 9 SOURCE I FDOT - DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY. 1991 1e PROJECTED YEAR 2015 TRAFFIC PATTERNS OF TH DUAL ARTERIAL CROSSING NETWORK FIGURE 10 SOURCE i FOOT • DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY, 1�1 17 PROJECTED YEAR 2015 TRAFFIC PATTERNS OF THE UNIVERSITY PARKWAY/DRIVE NETWORK FIGURE 11 LEGEND EXPRESSWAY WITH UNIVERSITY DRIVE SERVING AS COLLECTOR /DISTRIBUTOR ROADS SOURCE : FOOT - DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY, 1991 Pct Gp Ns°av P ATLANTI W z of Palm Bach Co r Broward AY 18 The "Full" networ% is the same as the "Parkway/Drive" network but includes an additional minor arterial to serve local trips (Coral Ridge Drive/Glades Road corridor) across the county line. Besides satisfying such local trips, it would allow the entire length of University Drive, in the study area, to operate within LOS standards. Since it has the positive attributes of the "Parkway/Drive" network plus satisfactory University Drive operation, it results in the best traffic operation. Figure 9 demonstrate the superiority of the "Full" network over the other networks. Figure 12 shows how the "Full" network provides a balanced distribution of area traffic with acceptable levels of service in the surrounding communities as well as the study area. Summary The results of this analysis support the rejection of the "Dual" network as a feasible alternative and the consideration of either the "Parkway/Drive" or "Full" network as feasible alternatives. However, when the superior traffic operation of the "Full" network is considered, together with the fact that it is essentially the adopted future road network reflected in local Comprehensive Plans and the Counties' right-of-way protection plans, it is the conclusion of this analysis that it should be implemented. Consistent with this conclusion, the proposed Trafficways Plan Amendment to eliminate University Parkway and alter the local network should not be approved. 19 PROJECTED YEAR 2015 TRAFFIC PATTERNS OF THE FULL NETWORK WITH ADDITIONAL NORTH/SOUTH CORRIDORS WEST OF STATE ROAD 7 SOURCE: FDOT DISTRICT 4 PLANNING JULY, 1881 20 III. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS Conclusions o Total traffic in the study area will be 411,800 daily trips. 82% of these trips are generated in the study area. o Of the 339,400 daily trips generated in the study area, 84% (284,000 daily trips) will leave the study area and impact the road networks of the surrounding communities. o Through traffic (trips which originate outside the study area, travel through the study area and find their destination outside the study area) is 72,400 daily trips, less than 20% of the total traffic in the study area. The position that more roads in the study area are not needed to serve local demand and would encourage more traffic, therefore, is not supported. o The study area has a demand of 105,000 daily trips crossing the County line (roughly the Hillsboro Canal) west of State Road 7. Without additional facilities, traffic from the study area must shift south and east creating negative impacts on the surrounding communities' (Coral Springs, Margate, Coconut Creek and the West Boca Raton area) road network. The "Benchmark" network indicates Sample Road, Sawgrass Expressway, State Road 7, Lyons Road and Florida's Turnpike would all operate at LOS F while Coral Ridge Drive and Wiles Road would operate at LOS E in the year 2015. Therefore, in order to satisfy demand and improve operation, additional north/south corridors should be provided parallel to and west of State Road 7. 21 o The "Dual" network fails to adequately serve the study area's demand, shifts this unmet demand to the south and east, does not separate local and through traffic, degrades surrounding communities' road networks and may create future "concurrency" problems. o Both the "Parkway/Drive" and the "Full" networks are based on, and quite similar to, the future network plans for the area, as shown in the local Comprehensive Plans and County Thoroughfare Right - of -Way Protection Plans. The results of this analysis support retaining this future network, which includes University Parkway. The "Full" network matches the needs of the study area best because it separates local and through traffic and allows University Drive to operate within LOS standards. This network supports the planned development of the area. o The construction of University Parkway as an Expressway is supported by the results of this analysis. It is a logical extension of the Sawgrass Expressway, removes through trips from the local road network, is an optimum design for new right-of-way, controls access, has the potential to serve more trips, and best serves the demand identified in this study. o Both University Drive (Arterial) and University Parkway (Expressway) are needed to support future development planned for the area. As a minimum, right-of-way protection for the "Parkway/Drive" alternative should be maintained. 22 Department Recommendations Based on the analysis presented here the following planning recommendations are made: o The proposed Broward County Trafficways Plan Amendment to remove University Parkway and alter the local network should not be approved. o Based on Year 2015 projections, the "Full" network should be adopted for this area and the corresponding right-of-way protection provided. 0o Consistent with implementation of the "Full" network both the University Parkway and University Drive corridors should be retained as shown in Figure 5. Although final right- of-way widths will have to be determined through detailed planning, development and environmental (PD&E) and design studies, right-of-way widths of 300 feet or more for the University Parkway and 200 feet or more for the University Drive Corridors will be required (sketches of the recommended geometry for University Parkway are included in Appendix D and are based on the results of this analysis). 0o The existing Glades Road corridor alignment should be modified to bend to the south and intersect with Palmetto Park Road and meet Coral Ridge Drive at Hillsboro Boulevard (Figure 5). 0o The Department should pursue the protection of the "Full" network through changes to the Palm Beach County Thoroughfare Right -of -Way Protection Plans, advanced right-of-way acquisition and coordination with local governments and the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs). 23 o Further analysis regarding needs for transportation facilities in the study area will be required in the event any significant changes to land use plans are proposed. Land use changes require a Comprehensive Plan Amendment. Therefore, any changes to trafficways plans based on or associated with such amendments should be made only in conjunction with or following the final adoption of any land use plan amendments. 24 APPENDIX A COUNTY /PLANr.JINU uuu "RAFFICWAYS PLAN T3 RO(,iiz, b CO. 1 ItII 21111111M110 IN* 3, I 3{ PALM BEACH 1 1 11 35 36 • • 32 • IcL-->v/.

The subject of the meeting was to discuss the District's possible assistance in modeling of the Northwest Broward area to facilitate review of proposed amendments to Broward County Trafficways Plan in the City of Parkland. Subsequently, Mr. Tako indicated that he had spoken with you and that he had been authorized to conduct the study. As requested, enclosed is a computer disk containing the socio-economic and link data for Palm Beach County at buildout. The buildout data for Broward County was provided to Mr. Tako at last Friday's meeting. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact Ms. Elizabeth Ledet of Council staff.

Wanchick, Administrator Froward County Planning Council 115 South Andrews Avenue Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 Dear Mr. Wanchick: RE: PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE BRONARD COUNTY TRAFFICMAYS PLAN We are in receipt of your letter of March 22, 1991 in which you list a number of proposed changes to the Trafficways Plan. Of the changes, the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension is of most concern. This District will propose that the Extension be included in the 1992 Florida Transportation Plan as part of the Florida Intrastate Highway System and as a Corridor for advanced right-of-way acquisition and/or protection. Accordingly, with such designations, the proposed deletion will adversely impact the Department's plans and programs. There will be future studies which will provide additional information about the validity of the proposed Florida Transportation Plan designations. The first will be the buildout travel forecast which the District's Systems Planning office anticipates completing in May of this year as a result of your request. The other will be the Action Plan study resulting from the Florida Intrastate Highway System designation. Until such studies are completed, it is our judgement that the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension is premature. We have no additional comments regarding the remaining changes as outlined in your letter. Thank you for the opportunity to express our concerns regarding the proposed Council changes to the Trafficways Plan. RC/sr cc: Joe Yesbeck Gus Schmidt Harold Kerr Sincerely, %moi° Rick Chesser, P.E.

WATTS SECRLTART RE: PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE BRONARD COUNTY TRAFFICMAYS PLAN We are in receipt of your letter of May 24, 1991 in which you list a number of proposed changes to the Trafficways Plan. As we indicated in our letter, of April 10, 1991, the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Expressway Extension is of most concern to the Department. In the referenced letter we listed two studies which would provide additional information about the validity of the Extension. It was our position that the deletion of the University Parkway/Sawgrass Extension from the Trafficways Plan prior to the completion of the studies is premature. District staff has made substantial progress in the completion of the first study - a buildout travel forecast analysis. Since this study is not complete and preliminary data found within it indicate that a facility will be required in the Extension Corridor, we continue to believe that any action resulting in its deletion is premature.
