MetroPlan Orlando, in conjunction with the City of Ocoee, is leading a study on the Silver Star Road Complete Streets Study. The Study will provide a lower cost alternative to widening the road with improved safety, and to include the extension of the West Orange Trail to Downtown Ocoee. The Silver Star Road study area is generally defined by the alignment of SR 438 (Silver Star Road/Ocoee Apopka Road/Franklin Street) through downtown Ocoee.
MetroPlan held the second Project Visioning Team (PVT) meeting on January 31. At the meeting, comprised of regional and local stakeholders, including the West Orange Chamber of Commerce, MetroPlan provided updates on the project, including a recap of existing conditions observations, alternatives that had been evaluated, and introduced a recommended alternative and potential implementation strategies.
