This project proposes pedestrian safety improvements along Woodland Boulevard (U.S. 17-92) from East Beresford Avenue to Plymouth Avenue in DeLand. Recommended improvements include upgrading existing pedestrian crossings and adding six new pedestrian crossings at the following locations:
- At East Winnemissett Avenue
- At the Intermodal Transportation Facility
- At Georgia Avenue
- At Michigan Avenue
- At University Avenue
- South of Pennsylvania Avenue
The proposed crossings would be equipped with Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFBs), which are pedestrian-activated signals that display flashing yellow lights to alert drivers that a pedestrian is ready to cross. By state law, vehicles must stop at all marked crosswalks when a pedestrian is present. More information about RRFBs can be found by going to www.alerttodayflorida.com.
Upgrades to existing crosswalks and pedestrian curb ramps are included.
