Reimagining Pine Ave

Project Details

The project consisted of the analysis of Pine Avenue, Spring Avenue and Magnolia Avenue for opportunities to implement complete street design options.

The public involvement portion of the project was particularly challenging. The GFY team organized and conducted three (3) hybrid (online/in person) public information meetings, one-on-one meetings with key stake holders (10 in total) and one-on-one meetings with all City Commissioners and the Mayor. All the corridor included a 50-ft right of way and two-lane facilities without bike lanes, and multiple sidewalk gaps. Lack of parking within the project area was another major issue in addition to the lack of loading zones for the businesses in the area. Finally, the presence of multiple micro mobility options like golf carts, scooters, e-bikes, etc. created unsafe conditions for all users.

The GFY scope of work included Permitting, Drainage assessment, Survey and Mapping, Traffic Studies and Planning, and Utility Coordination. The GFY team finalized the engineering report and presented the findings and alternatives to the City Commission at their October 25, 2021, special meeting. GFY is in the process of assisting the City complete an application to a Grant with the State for the design and construction of the proposed sidewalks, bike lanes and pedestrian crossings.
