University Avenue (SR 26) multimodal Emphasis Corridor Study

This study links the various modes of transportation to reduce traffic conflicts and enhance flow on SR 26/University Avenue. This is a key transportation corridor connecting the University of Florida, downtown Gainesville, and the neighborhoods of East Gainesville. Through community driven initiatives with stakeholders and the public, as well as Landis Evans’ innovative method of pedestrian path mapping this project will remedy many of the right-of-way geometric issues, unregulated pedestrian crossings, and other transportation infrastructure needs. Thus in a collaborative manner, strategies are being forged which reduce traffic, improve business activity, and enable a more active and sustainable community.
