What’s Next?

We’re nearing the completion of the Rock Springs Road and West Orange Trail Extension Studies. The study began in spring of 2021 and will conclude at the end of 2022. Once all public comments and feedback are in from the final community survey, the study team will consult with our partners at the City of Apopka and Orange County to refine the recommendations. Then the final report will be issued and the study will be complete.

Make sure to take the survey by October 20!
