The city and CRA seek to improve pedestrian connectivity between Old Winter Garden Road and the Downtown area and provide a safe route for children to walk and bike to the local schools.
In 2019, the CRA completed a complete streets study for Bluford Avenue from Old Winter Garden Road to Geneva Street, where the CRA boundary ends. In 2021, the CRA selected CPH Consulting, LLC to provide engineering and design services for this project.
Planned improvements include a 10’ shared path, traffic calming, roundabouts, expansion of sewer capacity, lights, and landscaping. Estimated cost is over $5 million. Preliminary Engineering was completed in 2022. Construction should start in fiscal year 2023-2024.
Project Status: Currently in Final Design and Engineering Phase
