Honore Avenue Palmer Ranch

September 9, 2009

The county began construction of Honore Avenue years ago as a third North/South road in addition to Tamiami Trail and I75. The road was intend to run from Manatee County south to State Road 681. To date most of the road has been completed with the exception of the portion between Bee Ridge and Fruitville and the portion south of Central Sarasota Parkway in Palmer Ranch. With political climates and economic realities having changed these projects are set to move forward. Construction costs have decreased dramatically since the end of the housing boom of 2003 to 2005 and the county is now able to complete these projects for a fraction of the original cost. Construction is expected to be complete in 2012. The portion in Palmer Ranch will be funded in part with impact fees from planned development in the lands along the new road.
