Orange County Government is hosting a community meeting this week to discuss analysis findings for the widening of County Road 545.

Orange County initiated a Roadway Conceptual Analysis Study for the widening of C.R. 545, Avalon Road, from U.S. 192 to New Hartzog Road. 

The length of the study runs approximately 1.20 miles.

According to Orange County, the purpose of the study is "to assess and recommend roadway improvements anticipated to improve safety and traffic flow in the area." 

"The study considers the social and environmental impacts of adding travel lanes and other features such as, but not limited to, drainage conveyance and treatment improvements, freight accommodations, sidewalk, raised medians, lighting, landscaping and intersection improvements," the county says on its website.

District 1 Commissioner Nicole Wilson will be in attendance as well as county staff who will present the findings from the study.

The public will have opportunities to ask questions and provide input. All comments will be reviewed and considered for implementation. 

The community meeting will take place on Thursday, Jan. 26, at the Hamlin Middle School cafeteria, 16025 Silver Grove Blvd.

An open house will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by a presentation at 6 p.m.
