Northeast Gateway (Welaunee Boulevard from Fleischmann to Shamrock)

Northeast Gateway (Welaunee Boulevard from Fleischmann to Shamrock) Gateways  Project PDF Overview The Northeast Gateway includes major infrastructure within the entire 7,000-acre Welaunee Critical Planning Area.  Building region-serving roads to support a new I-10 interchange will provide leverage to attract interchange funding from other sources.  The I-10 interchange, Welaunee Boulevard and other region-serving roads may take pressure off the scenic and protected Miccosukee and Centerville canopy roads, and potentially avoid costs for upgrades at the Thomasville Road and U.S. 90 I-10 interchanges.  Except for a portion of the Welaunee Greenway, all potential development spurred by these road improvements will be located inside the Urban Services Area on lands planned for urban development since 1990.      N Creates a gateway for northeast Leon County that is split into two project phases. N Estimated Cost: Phase 1 – $47.3 million Phase 2 – $30.7 million N  Phase 1 project elements include: Creates a regional road to support a new I-10 interchange Constructs  four lane Welaunee Boulevard South (Fleischmann Road to I-10) and North ( I-10 to Shamrock Way) Extends two lane Shamrock Way (Centerville Road to Welaunee Boulevard) Creation of the 8.4 mile Welaunee Greenway, with a footbridge across I-10 to connect to the Miccosukee Greenway, creating a 17-mile trail loop N Phase 2 project elements may occur once transportation connections north of Roberts Road have been identified and funded consistent with the County and City interlocal agreement.  Phase 2 project elements include:  Extends four lane Welaunee Boulevard North (Shamrock Way to Roberts Road) Extends two lane Shamrock Way (Welaunee Boulevard to Mahan Drive) Adds four additional trailheads on...

North Monroe Gateway (I-10 to Tharpe Street)

North Monroe Gateway (I-10 to Tharpe St) Gateways  Project PDF Overview Many visitors, residents, and former residents, including those coming to FSU and FAMU football games, enter Tallahassee via North Monroe Street.  Currently, the automobile-oriented streetscape and empty or underutilized properties along the corridor do not make an attractive or thriving first impression.  Investment in the corridor through streetscaping and pedestrian/bicycle safety enhancements, that will improve this entrance into the City and catalyze further redevelopment of the properties.     N Creates northern gateway entrance into Tallahassee that clearly identifies and brands Tallahassee from Interstate 10 to Seventh Avenue.  N Improves safety through pedestrian and bicycle enhancements.  N Complements the Midtown Sense of Place Project (landscaping along Monroe Street from Tharpe Street to the Thomasville Road intersection), creating a continuous entrance. N Estimated Cost: $9.4 million N Improves aesthetics to promote reinvestment and improves the quality of life for residents and daily commuters.

Southside Gateway Enrichment (Woodville & Crawfordville Highways)

Southside Gateway Enrichment (Woodville & Crawfordville Highways) Gateways  Project PDF Overview This project enhances regional mobility and supports the goal of economic revitalization to the Southside of Tallahassee. This roadway also has a significant regional impact as it is a crucial evacuation route from the coast. The multimodal connectivity improvements, enhanced roadway capacity, landscaping, and gateway features advance the redevelopment potential of the surrounding area. The current grey landscape of asphalt and concrete along Crawfordville Highway will be improved with a greenspace in the form of landscaped medians and open land for stormwater improvements. Finally, the project builds bike connections along Ross Road, linking Woodville and Crawfordville Highways.   N Creates a gateway feature at the interconnection of Woodville and Crawfordville Highways.  N Provides greenspace allowing for water infiltration and stormwater ponds. N Widens Woodville Highway (from Capital Circle SW to Tram Road) to four lanes, which will reduce evacuation time from coastal areas.  N Estimated Cost: $29.7 million N Constructs sidewalks, bike lanes, and wide medians for landscaping.

Airport Gateway: Springhill Road and Lake Bradford Road

Airport Gateway: Springhill Road and Lake Bradford Road Gateways  Project PDF Overview This project creates a unique urban gateway into Tallahassee from the airport.  The improvements along Springhill Road will include aesthetic and bicycle/pedestrian safety improvements that will benefit the surrounding neighborhoods. The improvements along Lake Bradford Road complement the nearby Gaines Street redevelopment and support further redevelopment by creating an aesthetically pleasing and safe pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular infrastructure within walking distance to FSU, FAMU, and Gaines Street.  N Creates a gateway entrance feature into Downtown, Florida State University and Florida A&M University.  N Supports traffic movement with a roundabout at the intersection of Stadium Drive and Gaines Street. N Enhances Springhill Road (Orange Avenue to Capital Circle SW) with landscaping, sidewalks, bike lanes, and potentially additional travel lanes and a median. N Estimated Cost: $58.7 million N Reconstructs Lake Bradford Road (Gaines Street to Orange Avenue) to add landscaping, bike lanes, and roundabouts at key intersections.
