Orange County has conducted a pedestrian safety study along approximately 4.6 miles of roadway near the University of Central Florida (UCF) area. The study corridors are Alafaya Trail from Challenger Parkway to McCulloch Road, University Boulevard from Rouse Road to Alafaya Trail and McCulloch Road from Alafaya Trail to North Orion Boulevard.
The design and construction of the study recommendations will be split into phases.
The first-phase project limits include Alafaya trail from Challenger Parkway to McCulloch Road and University Boulevard from Quadrangle Boulevard to Alafaya Trail. The Phase I design will consist of additional guideway signage, new pedestrian channelization in medians and behind curbs, new landscaping, intersection improvements with curb radii modifications, enhanced crosswalks, new pedestrian-scale lighting, a much wider sidewalk along the UCF frontage, and two new signalized mid-block pedestrian crosswalks. Additional phases will be developed as funding becomes available.
