The purpose of this project is to extend the life of the existing roadway by repaving the segment of 5th Avenue (U.S. 192) from Riverside Place to Miramar Avenue (State Road (S.R.) A1A) and to enhance pedestrian safety along the corridor. The project proposes to upgrade mid-block crossings and add pedestrian-activated lights known as Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) to enhance visibility of the crosswalks. A new pedestrian signal will also be added at Palm Avenue.
Other improvements include reconstructing pedestrian curb ramps and driveways to comply with current ADA standards, modifying existing drainage, and upgrading pedestrian lighting.
