Orange County and District 1 Commissioner Nicole Wilson hosting a live virtual community meeting on May 25 to review a Traffic Study conducted on Lakeside Village in Horizon West. The study largely focused on the neighborhoods surrounding Overstreet Road, which have been experienced increases in speed, traffic volume, and car crashes in the area.
The traffic study reviewed the volume of pass-through trips occurring, which are trips that start and end at either Ficquette Road or Winter Garden Vineland Road. The cars in this segment did not stop at a destination between these two roads. Based on the study, ~15% of traffic on Overstreet Road are pass-through trips and ~8% of traffic on Tattant Blvd.
When reviewing possible traffic treatment plans, Orange County also factored in future development of the area, which includes a future county park and a school.
Potential Improvements include:
- Speed feedback signs
- Street lighting
- Speed cushions/tables
- Remove existing turn lanes
- Additional median islands
- Speed limit reduction
The potential improvements are not finalized by Orange County. The Traffic Division is now reviewing the feedback received during the community meeting and will meet with traffic consultants to decide on what changes should take place. They will then present these changes to Commissioner Wilson and another public community meeting will be scheduled.
