Texas Avenue

Oak Ridge Road to Holden Avenue

What is the project?

The Texas Avenue study limits were from just south of Oak Ridge Road to just south of Holden Avenue, a length of approximately 1.5 miles.

Considerations

Texas Avenue has a unique character with future traffic demands in the mix.

Improvements features examined are:

  • Four lane widening
  • Drainage system
  • Landscaping
  • Pedestrian and bicycle facilities
  • Utilities
  • Traffic signals

What's Changed?

  • The addition of the Millennia Mall.
  • Redevelopment of the Orange Blossom Trail corridor.
  • Eventual upgrade and extension of Holden Avenue between John Young Parkway and US 441 (with an upgraded intersection at Texas Avenue) further support the need for the Texas Avenue Widening project.

Anything Else?

The improvements will include:

  • 11-foot wide travel lanes
  • A 15.5-foot, raised, grassed median
  • Concrete sidewalks
  • On-road bicycle lanes
  • Street lighting
  • Landscaping
  • Curb and gutter inlets for drainage.

The stormwater runoff from the roadway will be collected by an enclosed drainage system and piped to stormwater retention ponds.
