PURPOSE

The Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency (TPA) is conducting an Okeechobee Blvd & SR 7 Multimodal Corridor Study to identify alternative ways to create a safe, efficient, connected and multimodal transportation system for these corridors. This planning study will comprise of a roadway and transit alternatives analysis, Health Impact Assessment and Land Use & Economic Development Analysis – all of which will engage the public and key stakeholders for their review and input to guide the TPA’s selection of a recommended alternative.

The Okeechobee Blvd and SR 7 corridors are part of the TPA’s 561 Plan. This plan consists of five north-south and six east-west enhanced transit corridors, connecting central Palm Beach County to the rest of Southeast Florida. The TPA plans to study these corridors to select recommended alternatives, then work with the roadway owners and transit operators to prioritize and fund feasibility, design and construction of the recommended alternatives for implementation. For more information about the TPA, visit www.PalmBeachTPA.org.

In addition to gathering feedback online, the Palm Beach TPA always welcomes in-person comments at our office located at 301 Datura Street, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.

The TPA office is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. For questions, please call 561-725-0800.
