Nearly 100 Central Florida residents attended the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT’s) hybrid public meeting to learn about upcoming improvements at Interstate 4 (I-4) interchanges in Seminole County. Many attendees visited the open house in person on August 30 at the Lake Mary Events Center, while dozens of others attended virtually through GoToWebinar.
The purpose of these projects is to provide operational improvements to the intersection of County Road (C.R.) 46A (H.E. Thomas Jr. Parkway) and Rinehart Road near the I-4 and C.R. 46A interchange, and to implement safety enhancements at the I-4 and U.S. 17-92 interchange. The public meeting was held to present information and receive community feedback on the upcoming projects, which include:
The meeting provided area residents, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists with details about the proposed improvement projects as well as a potential timeline for construction. Design engineers answered questions and explained the proposed improvements with the help of design plans, large display maps, video, and informational handouts. The public also had the opportunity to submit questions and comments about the projects which will be part of the public record.
