ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — We’re getting a first look at Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings’ plan to improve transportation through a penny sales tax.
The plan includes 195 miles of intersection and street safety improvements, 25 miles of pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements, technology and traffic safety signal upgrades and 154 miles of major roadway improvements.
The details are outlined in an 1,100-page plan.
The plan is two years past due for Demings, but thanks to the pandemic, his transportation plan has had to wait. Still, he and many residents say a plan for Orange County’s transportation is overdue.
Demings said the top priority is to make it easier for those who rely on public transportation, which would mean more routes and more connectivity.
