Project Details
Work Type: Safety Study
Phase: Design
Limits: Sunshine Boulevard to Columbus Boulevard
Length: 7.5 miles

The project proposes interim median modifications to reduce conflict points and improve safety at the intersections of SR 82 with Sunshine Boulevard, Alabama Road, Blackstone Drive/Grant Boulevard, Rue Labeau Circle, Parkdale Boulevard, Bell Boulevard and Columbus Boulevard. The proposed safety improvements will prohibit left-turns from these sidestreets onto SR 82. This traffic will be required to turn right onto SR 82 and make a U-turn at one of the adjacent intersections.  Long term safety improvements continue to be considered and evaluated.
