According to a recent article by the Orlando Sentinel the City of Winter Park’s CRA is looking at reducing the four-lane Denning Drive to a two-lane street with bike lanes and street trees.
The City’s economic development program manager, Kyle Dudgeon, announced at a workshop that the CRA was hoping to make the corridor more pedestrian friendly. The largest issue, according to Dudgeon, is that Denning lacks sidewalk connectivity.
According to an estimate from the City’s Planning Department, fewer than 10,000 cars travel on Denning a day.
A “road diet” refers to a process of lane reduction or road channelization where the number of lanes on a road is reduced in order to make them safer for all modes of transportation, not just the automobile.
