The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting an open house for the North Grove Street (State Road 19) safety design project, which begins at East Floral Avenue and ends at North Eustis Street. The intent of this safety project is to reduce crashes by realigning the curve in the northbound direction within the state’s existing right of way. Construction is funded in fiscal year 2021.
The open house is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 26, at the Eustis Community Center, 601 Northshore Drive, in downtown Eustis. Attendees may come anytime between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to review project displays, hold one-on-one conversations with project team members, and watch a presentation video that will run on a continuous loop. The displays and video will also be available for review online at clfroads.com by October 3 (search by 441370-1).
