Dear College Park Resident,
One of the top priorities of the City of Orlando is expanding and enhancing our transportation options to connect more of our residents with access to jobs and opportunity, active lifestyles and reduce our impact on the environment. Ensuring that these options are safe is a key component to the City’s focus, which is why we are proud to announce plans for safety upgrades at the Shady Lane crossing over Edgewater Drive.
Construction of the project is expected to begin in late March and will utilize similar safety enhancements like those at the Orlando Urban Trail crossing located on Virginia Drive just west of Mills Avenue.
Once complete in early April; this popular crossing in the College Park neighborhood will include rectangular rapid flashing beacons visible to both northbound and southbound travelers on Edgewater Drive and an audible, pedestrian-controlled push button signal on both sides of Shady Lane to facilitate the crossing of Edgewater. Additionally, the sidewalk ramps at three of the four corners of the intersection will be upgraded with ADA accessible ramps.
Our Public Works Department is committed to delivering essential services while providing superior customer service. If you have any questions about this project, please contact myself, Frank Consoli, or my staff at Transportation Engineering 407.246.2281 or email@example.com.
