The Monroe County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved a resolution in July 2019 to create the Florida Keys Transportation Coordination Committee. The committee will study and research traffic issues and create formal recommendations for the governing bodies of the five municipalities and the BOCC.
The committee will be made up of six elected officials, one from each municipality and one from the BOCC. State and regional transportation officials and city and county staff will work with the committee to help make recommendations and answer questions. The committee will discuss enhancing public transportation, increasing intercounty trips for added convenience, and promotion of services to out-of-town visitors, as well as bring other ideas to be considered.
“Any improvements done to the U.S.1 corridor will help the entire island chain,” said Monroe County Commissioner David Rice, who brought the resolution forward. “Something needs to be done to make sure we have a convenient and safer highway.”
According to data collected for the 2020 strategic plan, traffic is one of the top concerns of Monroe County citizens.
