Project Adds Significant Section in the Coast to Coast Trail
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold an open house on Thursday, January 9, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. regarding the design of a new multi-use trail from Hiawassee Road to north of State Road (S.R.) 414. The open house will be held at ICP Orlando located at 5850 Clarcona-Ocoee Road, Orlando, FL 32810.
During the open house, community members can view project information, speak with project team members, and provide comments on the project. The 3.9-mile Orange County Gap Trail, Segment 2, is part of the Coast to Coast Trail. Improvements proposed as part of the project include:
- Providing a pedestrian/bicycle trail adjacent to the existing roadway;
- Improving crosswalks and pedestrian curb ramps;
- Making drainage and minor structure improvements;
- Installing new traffic signal poles on Clarcona-Ocoee Road at Powers Drive and Pine Hills Road, and on Pine Hills Road at Beggs Road; and
- Modifying the northbound U.S. 441 on ramp to westbound S.R. 414 by replacing the existing right turn with a signalized right turn for safety.
Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2022.
