Bee Ridge Corridor on Track, Tenuously
The Bee Ridge Road Project is still intact with a plan for Low Impact Design (the preferred choice), but due to the turndown in taxes being collected, the project might be delayed. This much became clear at a County Commission today. According to one Bee Ridge Neighborhoods Committee member who attended recent County hearings:
The Design and Engineering and Right of way purchases will continue for Bee Ridge through the end of 2012. The actual construction is scheduled to start in Oct 2013 but is highly dependent on an improving economy which will generate more sur tax revenue. If that does not occur, then the actual constuction will probably be deferred for several years.
