Input Sought on Orange Avenue Corridor Design
The Florida Department of Transportation is designing corridor improvements along Orange Avenue (State Road 527) from Grant Street to Gore Street. The community is invited to learn about the proposed improvements and provide comment during a public hearing on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2019, at the Christ Church of Orlando located at 2200 S. Orange Ave. in Orlando. The hearing will begin with an open house at 5:30 p.m., followed by the formal presentation at 6 p.m.
Project information is available online at http://www.cflroads.com/ by searching the project number 441145-1.
The purpose of the project is to resurface the existing pavement. Additional improvements include curb extensions (bulb-outs) to define on-street parking areas, raised medians in certain locations to improve safety and traffic operations, and enhanced pedestrian features in compliance with the current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The project also includes minor drainage improvements, new signing and marking features, as well as signal upgrades, pedestrian lighting, and decorative, colored crosswalks near the Pulse memorial.
Persons wishing to submit written statements or other exhibits, in place of or in addition to oral statements, may do so at the hearing or by sending them to Tyler Burgett, FDOT Project Manager, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by U.S. Mail to 719 South Woodland Boulevard, DeLand, Florida 32720. All exhibits or statements postmarked on or before November 29, 2019, will become part of the public hearing record.
