Valencia Road to Mary Ann Cleveland Way
STATUS: In Design
Design for this project began in August 2017. The design concept and initial design were established during the conceptual design phase which started in 2006. Improvements will extend from just south of the Valencia Road intersection to immediately north of the Mary Ann Cleveland Way intersection. The process is anticipated to take 24 months. A public meeting was held on Oct. 16, 2018. A second public meeting will be scheduled near design completion prior to starting construction.
