What’s happening along Orange Ave in front of Florida Hospital? It looks like they are widening the road.

It turns out he’s spot on. Florida Hospital is adding a turn lane to this part of Orange Ave to improve traffic flow and they are improving the street scape along Orange Ave and King St.

Have a question about something happening downtown, contact us and we’ll find out what’s going on.

Here’s a look at the plan for this area of Health Village (click for larger image):

  1. Sorry folks, but widening this intersection–and it’s looking very wide–isn’t an “improvement” for pedestrian safety.

  2. They should convert the outside lanes to parking. It’s only 4 lanes for a short segment then goes back to 2 in Ivanhoe Village. Where it goes to 4 lanes is where all the retail dies.
