FDOT Public Meetings to Address Truck Parking on I-4 Corridor
Drivers having trouble finding truck parking along the I-4 corridor in Florida will have the ability to tell transportation officials exactly where they need more parking.
On April 5, the Florida Department of Transportation has planned to hold a public meeting in Orange County to discuss the development of the Truck and Freight Alternate Site Analysis and Environmental Study project. The project concerns the parking of trucks along the I-4 corridor. A meeting in Osceola County will be held on April 12.
The study will “evaluate and recommend potential truck and freight parking solutions and alternatives for the I-4 Corridor that include social, economic and environmental assessment and effects of proposed improvements,” according to FDOT. Osceola, Orange, Seminole, and Volusia counties are potential truck parking areas.
Although studies have pointed FDOT in the right direction, only truckers know where the real truck parking problems lie along the I-4 corridor.
The only way for FDOT to build more parking spaces in the right places is for truckers to let them know. Public meetings for local and state projects are among the best places to brief transportation officials.
