Project Description: The Depot Avenue corridor provides a linkage between many historic neighborhoods, major employment centers, and several recreational parks.  Improving the Depot Avenue corridor into a multi-modal transportation corridor will provide critical linkages for all modes of travel to the historic Cotton Club neighborhood, the Rosa Parks Downtown Transit Station, the Depot Park, the historic Porter’s neighborhood, high-density student residential housing, medical facilities, and the University of Florida.

This phase of the project proposes to reconstruct the road between SE 7th Street and Williston Road with brick sidewalks, decorative LED lighting, and creek culvert rehabilitation. Specific design considerations were given to save Live Oaks and implement sidewalks adjacent to the historic Cotton Club.

Construction Cost: $3 M

Status: Completed

Benefits will Include:

  • Reconstructed roadway
  • Brick sidewalks on both sides of the road
  • Improved stormwater conveyance and treatment systems
  • Upgraded culverts at the creek crossing
  • Roundabout at SE 7th Street
  • Smart lighting ready
