The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) invites you to the second round of public meetings regarding project plans for the Truck and Freight Alternative Site Analysis Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study in Volusia County on Thursday, June 30, 2022, at 5:30 p.m.
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 details are available in the attached project handout. This public meeting is part of a series of meetings occurring for this project. Previous meetings were held in Osceola, Orange, Seminole and Volusia Counties in the spring of 2022 to introduce the project and the proposed site locations being evaluated. The purpose of this round of public meetings is to present the preferred site alternatives for each county and receive community feedback.
Additional meetings will be held in Osceola and Orange Counties in June 2022. A meeting was held in May 2022 in Seminole County. Each public meeting for this project will include the same information and presentation across all counties.
