How should the City of Gainesville rebuild SE 4th Street?
The City of Gainesville City Commission is asking residents for input concerning the rebuilding of SE 4th Street from Depot Avenue to SE Williston Road. The City Commission is looking for input from the general public with regard to the impact of the right-of-way width on adjoining properties, the costs associated with each option, and the impact to the safety and welfare of the public. Pending a decision from the City Commission, rebuilding would take place in Summer of 2015. Please scroll down to select your preferred option and then let us know why you selected that alternative, what modes of transportation you use on SE 4th Street, and any other comments you would like to provide us with in the statement box.
A public workshop will be held to present and discuss the various options, too:
- Date: Wednesday, June 4, 2014
- Time: 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
- Location: Historic Depot Building, east of Main Street
You can provide feedback at both the public workshop, City Commission Meeting, and this forum. Staff will share the results from the workshop and this forum at the City Commission Meeting. This topic has been rescheduled to the August 21, 2014 City Commission Meeting.
Choose one of the options:
SE 4th Street from Williston Road to Depot Avenue is an urban collector roadway with heavy industrial type traffic that traverses both industrial and residential land uses. The pavement condition is rated between 44 and 79 PCI and is 17’ wide. From 2013 data, the average daily traffic for the northern portion is 3,212 with 17% heavy traffic and the southern portion is 2,403 with 20% heavy traffic. There is a 4’ sidewalk along the east side that is in poor condition. This project is currently fully funded through the City’s adopted Capital Improvement Plan using Local Option Gas Tax. There are two proposed stormwater management facilities located on either side of the creek as well as a reconstructed creek crossing. Also, the proposed improvements currently include a right-turn lane at SE Williston Road.
The original option proposed two 12’ vehicular lanes, two 4’ on-street bike lanes, and two 6’ sidewalks. The City Commission requested staff to evaluate several different cross sections. The request was to evaluate right-of-way impacts to adjoining properties, cost benefits, and the effect to the safety and welfare of the general public. Staff was also directed to obtain input from the general public with regard to the roadway cross section.
Please review the seven different cross sections and select your preference for SE 4th Street. Staff will provide the City Commission with the outcome of this forum and will seek direction on which roadway cross section to utilize for SE 4th Street.
