|Construction Cost:||$11.7 Million|
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) plans to resurface State Road (S.R.) 46 from east of Monroe Road/ Upsala Road (County Road 15) to French Avenue (U.S. 17-92). In addition to resurfacing the roadway, the project recommends replacing the existing center two-way left turn with a raised median to enhance safety and help encourage slower driving speeds. Safety improvements will be made to pedestrian and transit facilities. Curb ramps will be reconstructed to current ADA criteria and new sidewalk will be constructed to fill gaps, providing a continuous route through the project limits.
Some on-street parking will be eliminated to provide 7-foot-wide buffered bicycle lanes. New midblock crossings, along with new sidewalk to fill gaps and upgraded pedestrian curb ramps, are also planned. Existing lighting will be retrofitted to current criteria at three intersections: Central Park Dr/ Old England Loop, Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard/Rand Yard Road, and Airport/ SunRail Station/ FPL Sanford Substation. Obsolete driveways are to be removed to improve pedestrian mobility.
