FDOT to Hold Public Meeting on State Road 436/South Semoran Boulevard Safety Improvements
Orange County – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will conduct a public hearing Tuesday, December 19, from 5-7 p.m. regarding proposed safety improvements on State Road (S.R.) 436/South Semoran Boulevard just south of S.R. 552/Curry Ford Road. The meeting will start as an open house at 5 p.m. with a presentation at 6 p.m. followed by public comments, and will be held at the FDOT Urban Office located at 133 South Semoran Boulevard, Orlando, FL, 32807.
The proposed safety project addresses operational and safety concerns in the area by converting the full median opening at the Ross entrance driveway to a bi-directional median opening with a new traffic signal providing a protected left turn from S.R. 436. This modification reduces traffic conflict points at the intersection, improving safety. Southbound and northbound left turns into the shopping centers will still be permitted, but left turns out will be prohibited. As part of the improvements, the left turn lanes to the south of this driveway intersection will also be lengthened, allowing for more queue space.
This public hearing is being conducted to give interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed improvements. Draft project documents are available for public review until January 2, 2018 at the FDOT Urban Office, 133 South Semoran Boulevard, Orlando, FL, 32807, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5p.m.
