FDOT and I-4 Mobility Partners hosted an open house at the I-4 Ultimate hub office on Oct. 17, 2014. More than 200 attendees came together as partners to kick off their long-lasting partnership, which will serve as the foundation for the I-4 Ultimate project.

I-4 Ultimate Construction Program Manager Loreen Bobo, I-4 Mobility Partners Chief Executive Officer Cesar Souza, FDOT District Five Secretary Noranne Downs and I-4 Mobility Partners Vice President Brook Brookshire delivered a welcoming speech to guests and outlined their goals for the project.

The open house was a great opportunity for partners to celebrate the start of I-4 Ultimate, connect with the project team and learn about the resources available to them. Guests included representatives from the project team, FDOT staff and support personnel, and local elected and appointed officials. In addition, FDOT and I-4 Mobility Partners were pleased to welcome Seminole County District 2 Commissioner John Horan, Mayor Howard Schieferdecker of Maitland, Mayor Clint Johnson of DeBary and Orange City District 2 Commissioner Ron Saylor.

Attendees enjoyed a barbecue lunch and had the opportunity to tour the office. The tour shared a variety of information with the group, including project fast facts, the structure of the I-4 Mobility Partners team and the project management plan. Those attending the event also were encouraged to sign the project banner — a lasting symbol of teamwork that will provide inspiration throughout the project’s duration.
