Florida Department of Transportation to hold public hearing on Quincy Loop project next week

The Florida Department of Transportation will host a public hearing next week to field citizen comments about the Quincy Loop South project, slated to run from Pat Thomas Parkway (SR 267) to U.S. 90.

The hearing is from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. next Thursday at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Science’s North Florida Research and Education Center, 155 Research Road, Quincy.

The Quincy Loop South Project Development and Environment Study is designed to evaluate the need to extend Quincy Loop South from Pat Thomas Parkway to U.S. 90. Aiming to keep environmental impacts at a minimum, the Department of Transportation has drafted six different proposals for the project.

Local residents are asked to recommend one of the six proposals at next week’s hearing. The study and proposals can be viewed at the William A. McGill Library, 732 Pat Thomas Parkway, Quincy; or Gadsden County Building and Planning Department, Edward J. Butler Government Complex, second floor, 1-B East Jefferson Street, Quincy.
