The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will hold a public meeting to discuss the proposed improvements to be made on State Road 838 (Sunrise Blvd.) between NE 20th Ave and Middle River Drive in Fort Lauderdale.  The meeting will be held Thursday, Nov. 4, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the George English Park Recreation Center at 1101 Bayview Drive in Fort Lauderdale.
