In order to analyze and prepare different alternatives for the corridor, the corridor was divided into three different segments.
Segment 1: MATHERS BRIDGE TO SOUTH PATRICK DRIVE (SR 513)
Segment 2: SOUTH PATRICK DRIVE (SR 513) to PALM SPRINGS BLVD.
Segment 3: PALM SPRINGS BLVD. to SR A1A
There was an opportunity to vote on various alternatives for each of the three segments at the first open house held on February 13, 2018. The results of the voting for each segment are summarized here: Segment Voting Results Summary
