State Road 60 – Brandon Boulevard Freight Compatibility Study (2013)


State Road 60 is the major thoroughfare through the heart of Brandon. The potential for increased freight on Brandon Boulevard triggered the need for a study of the compatibility of heavy truck traffic with surrounding land uses, congestion and safety. The potential increase is in part due to construction of the Winter Haven Integrated Logistics Center (ILC) in Polk County. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) also has a study underway to widen Brandon Boulevard (SR 60) between Valrico Road and Polk County, in part to accommodate potential increases in truck traffic. Our freight compatibility study addresses potential conflicts between trucks, pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles on SR 60 from I-75 to Valrico Road. Our study area contains what is referred to as the “center of Brandon or Brandon’s Main Street”.
