UCF Area Pedestrian Safety Study


Project Limits:

Orange County has conducting a pedestrian safety study along approximately 4.6 miles of roadway near the UCF area. The study corridors are Alafaya Trail from Challenger Parkway to McCulloch Road, University Boulevard from Rouse Road to Alafaya Trail and McCulloch Road from Alafaya Trail to North Orion Boulevard.

The first phase of implementing the study recommendations is underway with the design preparation of the first phase. The first phase project limits include Alafaya trail from Challenger Parkway to McCulloch Road and University Boulevard from Quadrangle Boulevard to Alafaya Trail. Additional phases will be developed as funding becomes available.

Purpose

The purpose of this design will be to take the recommendations from the study and transfer those concepts into engineered construction plans. The Public Works Engineering Division will work closely with the Florida Department of Transportation and the University of Central Florida during the development of the construction plans. A high level of detail, design analysis and adherence to federal, state and local regulations will be necessary to permit this project.

What's Included

The Phase I design will consist of additional guideway signage, new pedestrian channelization in medians, new landscaping, intersection improvements with curb modifications and enhanced crosswalks, new pedestrian-scale lighting, a much wider sidewalk along the UCF frontage, and two new signalized mid-block crosswalks.

Public Involvement

Orange County and the design consultant will be available for meeting with small groups and individuals to discuss all aspects of the project. A project newsletter will be issued to announce the start of the design project to property owners along the improvement corridors and this website will be updated over the course of the project.
