Another road listed on the Capital Improvement Project for a complete reconstruction is East 14th Street from Southmost Boulevard to International Boulevard.
East 14th Street will fall under the “complete street” plan which includes drainage and roadway improvements, sidewalks, and shared-use paths. It will consist of 2 travel lanes and a center turning lane. It will also include a 5 ft. wide sidewalk on one side of the street and a 10 ft. shared use trail on the other side of the street.
Here's a bit more information on some of the terms mentioned:
Drainage and Roadway Improvements: These improvements are essential for ensuring that the road can handle rainwater effectively, reducing the risk of flooding and water damage. Roadway improvements involve repaving, widening, or making other necessary enhancements to ensure the road's durability.
Sidewalks: Sidewalks provide safe paths for pedestrians to walk alongside the road, separate from vehicular traffic.
Shared-Use Paths: Shared-use paths are typically wider than sidewalks and are designed for both pedestrians and cyclists. They offer a designated space for cyclists to ride safely away from the road.
Other major roads on the list for reconstruction under the Capital Improvement Project include Old Highway 77, Wild Rose Lane, and Stage Coach Trail.
These projects collectively aim to enhance the overall transportation infrastructure in the area, improving safety, accessibility, and the overall quality of life for residents and visitors.
Community-driven projects like these are essential for maintaining and upgrading infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing and evolving community.
