There is a meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, at the ICI Center at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for residents to learn about the Florida Department of Transportation’s project to improve Clyde Morris Boulevard from Beville Road to north of Dunn Avenue.
Safety enhancements for all modes of transportation are planned as part of the improvements, including adding a raised median with landscaping throughout the project limits to encourage slower driving speeds. Continuous sidewalks on both sides of the roadway that will vary from 6-12’ wide and a pedestrian tunnel under Clyde Morris Boulevard, just north of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University entrance are also included in the project. A new on-street bicycle lane from north of Aerospace Boulevard to Buccaneer Way, enhanced lighting, roadway paving and upgraded curb ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act standards are also planned.
To accommodate the public, FDOT is offering multiple ways to learn about the project and provide feedback:
