The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is designing plans to construct a new traffic signal on North Orange Blossom Trail (U.S. 441) at Rosamond Drive in Orlando. This safety project also includes improving the intersection’s traffic operations and installing pedestrian ramps, lighting, signal and crosswalks. Construction is expected to begin by summer 2023.

Attendees may come anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to review project displays and to hold one-on-one conversations with the FDOT project team. There will be no project presentation.
