SKINNER BLVD UPDATE
As a measure to improve safety, encourage multi-modal transportation and catalyze the corridor, City Commission approved moving forward with design plans for Skinner Blvd. at the May 16 City Commission meeting.
The preliminary design concept approved by the Commission features a two lane section for Skinner with two roundabouts or traffic circles, along with wide sidewalks, enhanced bike lanes, landscaping, pedestrian crossings and possible future golf cart crossing. The Florida Department of Transportation has recently given conditional approval for a golf cart crossing at Skinner Boulevard and Bass. The project start is five years away and the next step will be to retain a consultant to prepare construction plans.
