The purpose of this project is to resurface about 6.5 miles of U.S. 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) from north of State Road (S.R.) 50 to the S.R. 414 ramps. In addition to repaving, the project will provide bike lanes in select locations, fill in sidewalk gaps and reconstruct pedestrian curb ramps to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
To reduce potential conflicts between turning vehicles, the project plans to replace the existing open median with a directional median at the intersection of Mott Avenue. The directional median will allow left turns from Orange Blossom Trail to Mott Avenue. Left turns onto Orange Blossom Trail from Mott Avenue and Pope Road will be restricted. A bi-directional median is also planned at the intersection with Busby Avenue/National Street.
Other safety improvements include narrowing the travel lanes and adding median landscaping to help encourage safer driving speeds, turn lane widening, and signal and lighting upgrades.
