449413-1 Ridgewood Avenue (US 1) Improvements from Fremont Ave to South St
|Work Type:||Safety Project|
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is planning safety improvements along U.S. 1 from Fremont Avenue to South Street in Daytona Beach.
To improve bicycle safety, the project plans to add a 7-foot-wide bicycle lane with a raised divider to separate the bicycle lane from the travel lane on each side of the roadway. Travel lane widths will be adjusted to make room for the new bicycle lanes.
The project also plans intersection improvements at Bellevue Avenue, including reconstructing the existing traffic signal with new poles and Smart Signal technology. Pedestrian signals would also be upgraded, and signal timing may be adjusted to provide a leading pedestrian interval (LPI) where pedestrians will receive the crossing signal while traffic is stopped in all directions.
Other intersection improvements include realigned and upgraded crosswalks, reconstructed pedestrian curb ramps to comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and enhanced lighting, Additional landscaping and new midblock crossings are also being considered.
