Dear Government Partner:

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has scheduled an alternatives public meeting for the I-95 at Pioneer Trail Interchange PD&E study, from Williamson Boulevard to Turnbull Bay Road in Volusia County. The purpose of the study is to develop and evaluate options for a proposed interchange at I-95 and Pioneer Trail. The purpose of the proposed interchange at I-95 and Pioneer Trail is to relieve traffic congestion on the two adjacent interchanges north and south of the project: I-95 at Dunlawton Avenue (State Road 421) and I-95 at State Road 44. The project also aims to support economic development associated with existing and approved developments, including three Developments of Regional Impact.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Brannon Center, 105 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168.  Attendees can watch a video presentation that will be running on a continuous loop, review study information, and discuss the design alternatives with FDOT staff and study team representatives.
