West Newberry Road Improvements

Overview

The FDOT is performing a Project Development & Environment (PD&E) Study on SR 26 (West Newberry Road) from the Gilchrist County line to County Road 26A (Newberry Lane). A PD&E Study is a detailed process by which roadway alternatives are developed by FDOT and presented to the public for review and comment. The objective of a PD&E Study is to perform initial engineering analysis to address transportation and safety needs and to evaluate potential social and environmental impacts. This study, along with input received from you, will serve as the basis for selection of the recommended improvements.

Two prior public information meetings have been held for this project on June 11, 2015 and January 28, 2016. These meetings were an “Open House” format for two hours followed by an opportunity for public questions and comments. Alternatives being shown at tonight’s meeting include:

NO-BUILD ALTERNATIVE
The no-build alternative is also being considered in the evaluation process. While the no-build alternative does not meet the project needs, it provides a baseline to compare and measure the effects of all build alternatives.

INTERIM ALTERNATIVE
The interim alternative proposes improvements to the SR 26 corridor only. Proposed typical section provides two 11-foot travel lanes, one in each direction, an 11-foot center left-turn lane, two 5-foot sidewalks and on-street parking on the north side of the roadway.

ULTIMATE ALTERNATIVE
The ultimate alternative provides a one-way pair system. SR 26 would become a one-way street eastbound, with two 12-foot travel lanes, two 5-foot sidewalks, a bicycle lane on the south side of the street and on-street parking on the north side of the street. NW 1st Avenue would become a one-way street westbound providing two 11-foot travel lanes, two 6-foot sidewalks, on-street parking, buffered bike lane, and a landscape area on the north side of the street.
