The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) invites all interested persons to a public hearing regarding proposed safety improvements at the intersection of Semoran and Cassel Creek boulevards. The hearing will begin as an open house at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, at the MetroLife Church located at 910 S. Winter Park Drive in Casselberry.
Proposed improvements consist of closing the current median opening, which will remove the left turn lanes into Cassel Creek Boulevard and Lake Howell Arms. Traffic on those roadways will still be able to turn right onto Semoran Boulevard. This modification improves safety in the area by reducing the number of conflict points at this location.
Attendees can view displays and other project information during the open house portion beginning at 5 p.m. Staff also will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. A presentation will then begin at 6 p.m., followed by public comments.
