Last week, Seminole Heights learned that Family Dollar had purchased the property at 5100 N Florida Avenue and was planning to locate a store next door to the Independent. The announcement was something of a shock to neighbors. Residents and businesses hastily held meetings and organized a "No Family Dollar" campaign to try and convince Family Dollar to locate their store elsewhere.
The Florida Department of Transportation's (FDOT) contractor is widening the bridges and shoulders of Interstate 275 from south of Floribraska Avenue to north of Yukon Street.
This project will widen shoulder areas to create a more consistent shoulder width (inside shoulders will typically be about 21-feet wide; outside shoulders will be 10-feet wide) for northbound and southbound I-275 to allow vehicles to pull all the way out of travel lanes for breakdowns and accidents. The major work will be the median (inside) shoulders. To accomplish this, partial demolition and widening with occur on 13 pairs of bridges (for a total of 26 bridges). These bridges will be widened to connect in the center and four of the bridges will also be widened to the outside. There will also be widening on the roadway (non-bridge) shoulder portions of the highway.
