Maybe that will help and keep someone from getting confused while turning onto 441. We drove around and I must comment on how pretty the Edward’s Field lawn is. The grass looked thick and filled in good, and really pretty and green. The trees that had been planted in the past looked thick and shapely. The Kit Land Nelson Park looked especially nice, and the grass looked so thick and healthy. That area is really improving!

These signs need to be posted at Dream Lake Park, and over at Buchanan Pond Park. June 21, 2016 at 6:21 pm On Friday June 10th The Apopka Voice published a story about a problem intersection in Apopka.  The intersection at 441 and Bradshaw had turn lane stripes that were confusing drivers.  Phyllis Olmstead, aka Dr. O, had suggested the City should not wait but should simply, “… paint over the stripes with some black tar paint now. Do it before someone gets hurt.”When we asked the City about the turn lane stripe we were told the following by Robert Sargent, Apopka’s Public Information Officer; “The City of Apopka is scheduled to complete changes to that intersection later this year with installation of new traffic signals and mast arms. The turn lane stripes likely will be addressed at that time.”Dr. O sent us a photo today of the intersection.  It shows that the white turn lane strips are now black.We asked Robert Sargent to tell us what happened.  He provided this explanation:“Our Public Services Department had been planning the remaining improvements for later this year including new traffic signals and mast arms. The turn stripes were not needed as we finalize designs for the intersection, so Public Services covered over them last week in advance of the other improvements, which likely will take a few more months to complete.”Phyllis Olmstead, who first complained about the intersection a year ago said this, “After more than a year of a citizen seeking resolution of the problem, it took press coverage to get a simple correction. Thanks to The Apopka Voice, a year old citizen complaint was actually considered important.” Please enter your comment!
