On an annual basis, TPO staff evaluates all eligible priority projects for Marion County based on policies of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and TPO policies. The projects are identified and selected from the TPO’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). This evaluation process includes an objective and technical review of each priority based on level of service, physical condition, facility type, benefit to the roadway network, local partnerships, construction cost, and scheduled work program phase. This process also includes close collaboration with technical staff from the cities of Belleview, Dunnellon, Ocala and Marion County.
The following list provides the Top 20 priorities adopted by the TPO Board on May 26, 2020, to support the development of the next Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Tentative Work Program for Marion County.
