A Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study is an environmental and engineering process that was developed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), in response to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. The PD&E study process ensures that transportation projects are developed with consideration of current engineering standards, project costs, and minimization of social and environmental impacts, while involving the public throughout the entire study process.
FDOT has embarked on a public involvement program as part of this PD&E Study to ensure public input throughout the study. This involves actively encouraging and facilitating the participation of the general public, citizen groups, interest groups, elected and appointed officials and other stakeholders. There is no need to wait until a public meeting to provide your input. Public comments and questions are welcomed at any time throughout the study. The community is encouraged to learn more about the project through this study website.
For questions or comments, contact the FDOT Project Manager, Binod Basnet, P.E. or visit the Email Us page to sign up for notifications or leave a comment.
The latest materials for the Sebastian Inlet Bridge Replacement PD&E Study will be available on the Documents and Publications page of this website. Please check back regularly for updates as the study is constantly evolving.
