Orlando International Airport (OIA) Connector Refresh Study
Public Meeting June 18
Orlando, FL – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a public meeting regarding the alternatives analysis for the Orlando International Airport (OIA) Connector Refresh Study. This study is evaluating options for providing transit service between major activity centers in the study area with connectivity to the SunRail project. The study area is bordered by Interstate 4 on the west; Oak Ridge Road and Hoffner Avenue on the north; Narcoossee Road on the east; and Osceola Parkway on the south, in Orange and Osceola Counties, Florida.
The study will consider and assess community support, financial options, and policy support of the alternative determined to best meet the current and future needs of the study area. The results of this analysis are anticipated to result in a recommended alternative to be potentially adopted by MetroPlan Orlando, the regional transportation planning agency in Central Florida.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Pine Castle located at 1001 Hoffner Avenue in Orlando. It will start with an informal open house at 5:30 p.m. There will be a presentation at 6:30 p.m. Attendees may ask questions or make comments either before or after the presentation. This meeting is an important part of the Alternatives Analysis and is necessary to aid the FDOT in obtaining public input on the initial project alternatives.
Display maps illustrating the project corridors being studied and the initial alternatives, the project schedule, and other information will be available for public review and comment. Project representatives will be present during the specified hours to informally discuss the project, receive public input, and answer questions.
