Feedback Sought for S.R. 527 (Orange Avenue) Proposed Improvements

Orange County The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting a public hearing regarding proposed improvements along State Road (S.R.) 527 (Orange Avenue) between the southbound bifurcation (where S.R. 527 splits into one-way pairs, just south of Lake Conway Drive) to north of Grant Street in Orlando. The hearing is on Tuesday, February 20, at the Beardall Senior Center, 800 South Delaney Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801.
