Gatlin - Holden Avenue

Description

Orange County has initiated a traffic operational study at the intersections of Holden Avenue, Orange Avenue and Gatlin Avenue. The subject four lane section of Orange Avenue carries over 48,000 vehicles per day and congestion backups routinely stretch over ½ mile in each direction during peak travel times. There are approximately 600 crashes at this location on a yearly basis. The congestion and associated delays are believed to be due to the existing offset intersection configuration, heavy turning traffic from/to Orange Avenue to side streets and limited existing left turn storage lengths on Holden Ave. and Gatlin Ave. The study will include:

  • Vehicular, Pedestrian and Bicycle counts
  • Field observations
  • Existing conditions intersection analysis
  • Identification of travel patterns & future traffic volume forecasts
  • Intersection improvements
  • Access management
  • Assessment of different intersection designs and realignments
  • Drainage analysis
  • Railroad assessment
  • Coordination with FDOT
  • Public involvement

Purpose

The main objective of the project is to study alternative intersection designs to reduce delays and improve safety along Orange Avenue and specifically at the intersections of Holden Avenue and Gatlin Avenue

Status

  • Collecting data to analyze existing conditions and forecast future conditions
  • Orange County is currently working on an interim improvement with FDOT

Public Involvement

Public engagement is an important aspect of this project and Orange County’s objective is to get the community involved in the project development and decision-making process so the County can develop a project that not only meets the transportation needs of the area, but is also supported by the community it is intended to serve.
