Dean Road RCA

Rapid development of UCF and surrounding areas
that impact Dean Road

Planning ahead

The rapid development of UCF and the surrounding area are impacting Dean Road. The 1.4 mile study is from University Boulevard to McCulloch Road/Lake Georgia Drive.

Considerations

The area is a mix of residential, commercial, churches, wetlands, farm lands and open land. Improvements will address the transportation needs while minimizing environmental, social and economic impacts.

It is Important

Dean Road is a north-south roadway that links east-central Orange County with south Seminole County. It is a key thoroughfare in this area.
