The motion to accept the proposed fiscal year 2015-2020 Capital Improvement Plan by the Winter Park Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board was approved unanimously in a 7-0 vote. READ IT HERE.
One item included in the CIP is the proposal to make improvements to the Intersection of US 17-92 & Fairbanks Avenue.
Proposed improvements to include
- gateway elements (Winter park sign)
- remarking crosswalk locations
- mast arm traffic signals (replacing the span wire stop ones)
- landscaping at each corner
- streetscape improvements
- utility signage
- underground utility lines
- lighting/light poles
It's a concept only and still would need Agency review when it moves forward. It's scheduled, however, for fiscal year 2018-2019 at a total cost of $1,285,648.
The Agency says This "project has safety, aesthetics, and blight remediation elements. Each of these components have been shown to have significant impact on areas from a social as well as an economic perspective."
