The construction project that was originally pitched as part of the I-4 Ultimate Project is finally taking shape.
Hicks Avenue, in Parramore, will be extended from Anderson Street to Gore Street, as FDOT and the City of Orlando work to create a new north/south corridor through the district with a complete street aesthetic, made possible by the removal of the I-4 and State Road 408 interchange ramps adjacent to Griffin Park and Z.L. Riley Park, west of Division Avenue.
This project will also reconnect the Holden/Parramore neighborhood previously divided by the I-4 and State Road 408 interchange.
On Thursday, December 9, at 6:30 p.m., the City of Orlando and the Florida Department of Transportation staff will host an open house to share the future vision for the Hicks Avenue corridor with the community and seek their feedback. The meeting will take place at Shiloh Baptist Church of Orlando at 580 W. Jackson Street [GMap].
