Floribraska Ave Complete Streets Project (Tampa St to 9th St)

Proposed improvements of Floribraska Avenue at Central Avenue.
Proposed improvements of Floribraska Avenue at Central Avenue.

This project provides for reconfiguring the existing 4-lane undivided roadway to a complete street with two (2) 10-feet travel lanes separated by a two-way left-turn center lane plus an on-road bidirectional cycle track, with a raised separator on the southern side of the road. The proposed improvements also include wider sidewalks, raised pedestrian refuge islands, and crosswalks at the intersections of both Jefferson St. and Central Ave.

Currently, the 0.6-mile segment of Floribraska Avenue between N. Tampa Street and 9th Street is an east-west, 4-lanes (two travel lanes in each direction) arterial roadway and bus route with a posted speed of 30 mph with an average daily traffic volume of 9,000 vehicles per day. The proposed improvements will reduce conflicts and sight obstruction hazards along the corridor making it safer for all users in accordance with the City’s Vision Zero initiative while maintaining the existing roadway’s level of service.
