Complete Streets goals

Ever tried to walk from dinner at East End Market to dessert at Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream in the Audubon Park neighborhood? Corrine Drive, which runs between the two, has plenty of traffic and too few crosswalks. That fear for your life as you dart across the four-lane road makes for a poor palate cleanser.

On a sweet note, MetroPlan Orlando is kicking off a one-year study of the Corrine Drive corridor from U.S. 17/92 to Bennett Road. The study is part of the Complete Streets initiative and will look at many options for the corridor for people who want to bike and walk to Juniors Diner for their Sunday morning pancake fix. Plus, a new school expected to open in 2018 means more kids biking and walking in the area.

BWCF joined planners and community advocates for a kickoff meeting of the study. Community members will be encouraged to provide input so that the road can be fitted to meet their needs.
