Welcome

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is designing improvements for the Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue (9th Avenue East) and 15th Street East intersection. The primary purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow and provide safe pedestrian access along both corridors. FDOT considered two designs for this intersection. One design included new left turn lanes on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue onto 15th Street East. The other design considered a roundabout at this intersection. Both options would require right-of-way acquisition. FDOT has determined that adding a roundabout will best meet the needs of the intersection.
