Meeting will be offered in multiple platforms
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has rescheduled a public meeting regarding project plans for the Truck and Freight Alternative Site Analysis Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study in Orange County. The meeting will now take place on Tuesday, April 5, 2022 at 5:30 p.m., at the original location – Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Orlando – Meeting Room, 6500 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819. The public meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
Meetings for this project are being rescheduled to give additional time for further coordination, which will allow for expanded public outreach efforts prior to the meetings as well as additional details to be provided at the scheduled meetings.
The purpose of this project is to evaluate and recommend potential truck and freight parking site alternatives along the I-4 corridor that are viable for private and public operator use.
Additional public meetings for prospective truck parking site alternatives along the I-4 corridor have been rescheduled to be held in Osceola, and Volusia Counties in April 2022. A public meeting for Seminole County took place in March 2022. Each public meeting for this project will include the same information and presentation on potential sites across all counties.
The Department is offering multiple ways for the community to participate in the meeting. All participants, regardless of platform they choose, will participate in the same live meeting.
