The proposed improvements to State Road 426/County Road 419 begin at Pine Avenue and extend east to Avenue B for 1.4 miles. The proposed improvements include widening the two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided urban roadway. It will consist of two travel lanes in each direction, separated by a 22-foot-wide raised grassed median, bike lanes, and sidewalks on both sides.
This project will also include improvements to Lake Jessup Avenue and Oviedo Boulevard. Improvements to stormwater ponds for drainage and flood control are included in this project, as well.
In addition, a pedestrian hybrid beacon (PHB) is being installed at Oviedo High School to aid students in crossing SR 426. This PHB will stop traffic in both directions when activated and has been proven to reduce pedestrian crashes by 55% and reduce serious injury and fatal crashes by 15%.
