The MPO Board adopted the 2016 List of Priority Projects  at their regularly scheduled meeting on September 8, 2016.

The Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is undertaking a planning study to address current conditions, stakeholder concerns (incl. bicyclists and local residents), commonly used bicycle routes, options or improvement types available, costs and priorities for the northeast area of Pasco County, sometimes known as the San Antonio Hills.  The bicycle safety measures will consider engineering solutions, education strategies, and enforcement options. We are soliciting input from all interested parties to provide insight into the areas that are of the most concern for all users. The link provided below will take you to a map showing several bicycle club routes some of which overlap each other (dashed lines). This map was displayed at a public information meeting that was held on August 18, 2016 in Dade City. You can download the PDF file (2MB) and either comment directly on the map and attached a scanned version of the map and submit electronic comments to the MPO at: You may also mail comments to the address below.

VISION 54/56
The MPO had begun studying potential highway and transit improvements on the S.R. 54/56 corridor from U.S. 19 to Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.  This study had been divided into two phases.

Phase involved a citizen led task force approach with the objective of recommending up to 6 viable including a “no build” alternative . Task force recommendations for phase I was presented to the MPO Board on June 9, 2016 . The MPO Board authorized staff to move forward with  phase 2 of the study to evaluate the recommended alternatives and selecting a preferred alternative. The purpose of phase 2 will be to:

  • Evaluate the 5 to 6 alternatives resulting from Phase 1.
  • Facilitate extensive public engagement and outreach.
  • Select and refine a preferred alternative.
  • Develop an implementation plan.
