The Alton Road Reconstruction Coalition -- a grassroots group pushing for more of a mixed-use rebuild of Alton Road by the Florida Department of Transportation-- starts a series of community meetings Monday, with more on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Work on rebuilding Alton began fittingly on April 1 by FDOT. They embarked on a 28-month, $32 million project that includes the construction of new pumping stations at Fifth, 10th and 14th Streets to battle chronic flooding in the Alton Road-West Avenue area. It wil also bring new signage, stoplights and street lights.
