The City of Orlando will apply a Safe Street initiative to Curry Ford’s streetscape this week stretching between South Bumby Avenue to South Crystal Lake Drive, making it a temporary biking and pedestrian-friendly oasis.
Contractors are already onsite installing temporary traffic delineators to create dedicated and protected bike lanes on both sides of the roadway and reduce travel lanes from four to two lanes.
Crews will also install a new mid-block pedestrian crossing between El Paso Avenue and Morristown Avenue that will feature a temporary island refuge in the median and artistic design to further increase visibility.
This demonstration project will be in place for four weeks.
There will be a Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Fair held at the Curry Ford Family Dollar Shopping Center at 2850 Curry Ford Road [GMap] on Saturday, April 14 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
