Public meeting to talk about SR 551 improvements Jan. 28

Orange County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will have a public hearing about the safety improvements at the intersections of State Road (SR) 551 (South Goldenrod Road) at Quail Pond Street, and SR 551 at Mai Tai Drive.

The projects address crash patterns at the intersections by changing the full median openings to directional median openings. This modification reduces traffic conflict points at these intersections.

The public hearing will be 5-7 p.m. Thursday, January 28, 2016, at the FDOT Urban Office’s the Lake Apopka Conference Room, 133 South Semoran Blvd., Orlando.

There will be a formal presentation at 6 p.m. Staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions before and after the presentation.
