Alternatives Public Meeting - Sanford Amtrak Auto Train Gateway Improvements
Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study

Seminole County- The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding an alternatives public meeting for the Sanford Amtrak Auto Train Gateway Improvements PD&Estudy. We will present alternatives that improve the connectivity, access, mobility and safety associated with the existing transportation network within the vicinity of the Amtrak Auto Train terminal and other nearby facilities in Sanford. Study limits are bordered by Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard on the west; State Road (SR) 46 (First Street) on the north; Pecan Avenue on the east; and McCracken Road on the south.


The meeting is Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the Calvary Temple of Praise located at 2020 McCracken Road in Sanford. It is an open house format from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with a presentation at 6:30 p.m.  Attendees may review study information and discuss design alternatives with the study team. A copy of the presentation will be available online after the meeting at: www.SanfordAutoTrainStudy.com

Potential alternatives being considered include a bridge crossing over the railroad tracks at one of two locations east of Persimmon Avenue, pedestrian crossings at several potential locations or a combination of the above improvements. This meeting will provide interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the proposed design alternatives.
