FDOT Section 5 Pre-Construction Public Meeting Draws 84 People

May 2017

The Florida Department of Transportation hosted 84 people on May 23 at the Wekiva Parkway Section 5 Pre-construction Public Information Workshop at Camp Challenge in Sorrento. Among those in attendance were George Gadiel, Lake County Engineering and Public Works; Gallus Quigley, Lake County Parks and Trails Division; Lt. Aldrich and a couple others with Lake County Fire and Rescue.  


Some community members expressed concerns about project impacts to entrances, proximity, noise and visibility. Many others were excited about the overall project and soon-to-be-improved access to SR 429. A number of people were interested in the parkway trail.


Section 5 construction is scheduled to begin June 5.
