The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public meeting regarding the Project Plans Development and Environmental Assessment (PD&E) of the Truck and Freight Alternate Site Analysis Project on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. The purpose of this project is to evaluate and recommend potential alternatives for truck and freight parking sites along the I-4 corridor that are viable for use by private and public operators.
