Welcome

FDOT is designing medians and crosswalks on 8th Avenue West between 14th Street West and 9th Street West for pedestrians. This project also creates dedicated turn lanes at most of the intersections. In addition, the project will create dual eastbound left-turn lanes at the 8th Avenue West/9th Street West intersection to allow room for more vehicles. Currently pedestrians are crossing 8th Avenue West anywhere they choose to cross. The pedestrian channelization in the medians will help “funnel” pedestrians to designated crossings making the roadway safer.
