The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public meeting regarding safety improvement plans on 13th Street (U.S. 192) at Florida Avenue, Indiana Avenue, and Michigan Avenue in St. Cloud on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, at 5:30 p.m.
The purpose of this project is to enhance pedestrian safety at the intersections by adding new pedestrian-activated signals at Florida Avenue and Indiana Avenue and upgrading the traffic and pedestrian signals at Michigan Avenue.
In October of 2020, a St. Cloud Police Department School Crossing Guard was struck by a vehicle in the intersection that had run a red light.
