Feedback sought for I-4 rest-area demolition and replacement


Seminole County - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is conducting a public information meeting the end of this month regarding the reconstruction of the eastbound and westbound rest areas along Interstate 4, located near Longwood and Lake Mary in Seminole County.


The project includes demolishing the existing rest area facilities, and constructing new facilities. Construction of a perimeter wall is also proposed. Additionally, plans call for relocating the Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC), including accommodations for the Florida Highway Patrol, to the eastbound rest area near Lake Mary. Construction funding is programmed in fiscal year 2016.


The public information meeting is Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at the Markham Woods Church of Seventh-Day Adventists, 505 Markham Woods Road in Longwood, FL 32779. It begins with an open house at 5:30 p.m., where project staff is available to answer questions and project documents are available for review. A brief presentation—an overview of the project—is at 6:30 p.m. The meeting ends at 7:30 p.m. 


Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability or family status.  Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact: Valerie Ciudad-Real, Public Information Coordinator, 813-404-1572, valeriec@valerin-group.com
