Oak Ridge Road Pedestrian/Bicycle Safety

Description

The Oak Ridge Road Pedestrian Safety project, from Millennia Boulevard to Orange Blossom Trail, will address pedestrian and bicycle safety. The following recommendations from the 2017 safety study will be implemented:

  • Milling and resurfacing of Oak Ridge Road, with additions of raised medians and dedicated left turn lanes to promote safety.
  • Widening the existing 5-foot wide sidewalk on the south side of the road to an 8-10 foot wide sidewalk between Millennia Boulevard and Shingle Creek.
  • Adding special road widening “bulb outs” in certain locations to better allow for U-turns without impeding traffic.
  • Adding crosswalk marking and detectable warning pads at intersections, cross streets, and driveways.
  • Adding mid-block crossings at two different locations, including at the Westridge Middle School to enhance safety for school children.
  • Relocating several bus stops to allow for better access to safer crossing locations.
  • Improving signage to better warn drivers of pedestrian crossing locations, including adding pedestrian signals or rapid flashing beacons at certain midblock crossings.

Purpose

The wide variety of land uses along the corridor, including multiple institutional, educational, residential, retail, religious and office land uses, as well as heavily used transit routes, necessitates that the corridor be truly and safely accessible by all travel modes.

Status

The project is currently under design
