A PD&E re-evaluation study was performed on this corridor and provides improvement recommendations. Due to funding, these recommended improvements will be implemented in phases. This project, the first phase, will incorporate widening US19 at Gandy Boulevard / Park Boulevard and on Gandy Boulevard to provide dual left-turn lanes southbound to eastbound. Operational improvements to the off-ramps from Gandy Boulevard onto US19 will be addressed. Bicycle and pedestrian accommodations will be implemented where feasible.
In addition to the turn lanes, this project will look at signalizing the following intersections:
- US19 and Gateway Center Boulevard
- Park Boulevard and 40th Street North
Future projects will address the remaining PD&E re-evaluation recommendations.
Design is currently underway. Right-of-way appraisals/acquisition is anticipated to begin in early 2022. Construction is not currently funded.
- There are no lane closures at this time.
