PUBLIC NOTICE - Proposed Amendment - May 18, 2017:

The Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will hold a regularly scheduled Public Meeting of the MPO Governing Board at which adoption of a proposed amendment to the MPO’s 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) will be considered after public input. The MPO Governing Board meeting will be held at the Palm Beach County Governmental Center, 12th Floor conference room, at 9:00 AM on May 18, 2017. The address is 301 N. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach, FL 33401. Florida’s Turnpike staff members will make a presentation as background for the proposed amendment. 
 
Purpose of Amendment:
This proposed amendment incorporates proposed projects for the widening and implementation of managed express lanes along Florida’s Turnpike from the Palm Beach/ Broward County line north to Indiantown Road in Jupiter. Express lanes are a type of managed lane where congestion is managed with pricing, access, eligibility and dynamic tolling. Express lanes are implemented to address existing congestion, enhance transit services, accommodate future regional growth and development, enhance hurricane and other emergency evacuation and improve system connectivity between key limited access facilities. When express lanes begin to reach their capacity, the toll is increased to discourage drivers from entering the lanes. This allows the express lanes to maintain a certain level of trip reliability. The Florida Department of Transportation has several express lane systems either in operation, under construction or proposed. 

Proposed Amendment: Florida's Turnpike
