The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) invites the community to attend a virtual public meeting regarding plans to enhance safety along John Young Parkway (County Road 423) at the westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) off ramp. The meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 8, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The project proposes to modify the westbound I-4 exit ramp to John Young Parkway by physically separating traffic turning west onto LB McLeod Road from traffic on John Young Parkway with a raised concrete barrier. Additionally, the project will widen the ramp at the signal to John Young Parkway and provide dedicated right turn and let turn lanes at the signal for traffic entering John Young Parkway.
