Volusia County, FL – An upcoming public hearing will give residents the chance to give feedback on FDOT’s plans to add express lanes on I-4.
At the hearing, there will be a presentation on the “I-4 Beyond the Ultimate” Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study. The study focuses on adding express lanes on I-4 from west of US-27 to west of Kirkman Rd/SR-435 to the west, and from east of SR-434 to east of SR-472 to the east – a distance of about 40 miles. This public hearing’s presentation will focus on FDOT’s recommended design alternative for building express lanes on I-4 from east of US-17/92 to east of SR-472.
The hearing had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Matthew and will be held on Wednesday, November 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at Deltona City Hall in the Commission Chambers at 2345 Providence Blvd. The event will open with an open house at 5:30 with a formal presentation at 6, which will be followed by a public comment segment. “People will be able to come out and offer comment either on record, written or vocally, about the recommended alternative,” said Jessica Ottaviano, Public Information Officer for FDOT.
Anyone who wants to submit a written statement can do so at the hearing or by sending a letter to Beata Stys-Palasz, P.E. at 719 South Woodland Blvd, DeLand, FL 32720, by phone at 386-943-5418, or via email at email@example.com. Everything postmarked on October 17 or earlier will become part of the public hearing record.
