Plant City Roadway Extension Studies: Sam Allen Rd and Rice Rd (2017)


The Hillsborough MPO conducted two corridor studies to address transportation issues in and around Plant City.

The first study looks at extending east Sam Allen Road from North Park Road to North County Line Road, where significant population growth is expected prior to 2040.

The second study looks at extending Rice Road from Coronet Road to South County Line Road. Continued industrial growth is expected in this area, and the need for the roadway was noted in the MPO’s 2016 Freight Logistics Zone Study. The new connection will strengthen economic ties to rapidly growing western Lakeland, where Amazon recently built a distribution center.
