Changes coming to Curry Ford Road

Will a road diet of Curry Ford Road make it safer for those biking and walking? That’s what the City of Orlando is trying to find out.

As part of Smart Growth America’s Safe Streets Academy, the City has chosen the Curry Ford Road corridor (from S. Bumby Avenue to S. Crystal Lake Drive) to roll out a four-week demonstration project.

In late March, the City of Orlando will make temporary changes in the form of bike lanes, crosswalks and other bike/ped enhancements that will remain throughout April. During this trial period, the City will analyze user behavior and consider future changes.

The project is making headlines across the country. Check out this recent article about the trial changes published by Streetsblog USA and this article from Modern Cities.
