City of Pensacola Awarded $176,000 in Federal Grant Funding
The City of Pensacola has been awarded $176,000 in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Safe Streets for All program to improve roadway safety by significantly reducing roadway fatalities and serious injuries through safety action plan development, refinement and implementation.
The grant dollars will be used by the city to pilot and evaluate temporary roadway enhancements, such as shared lane markings and curb extensions, on Gonzalez Street — a two-mile corridor on the city's High-Injury Network that has the potential to be a neighborhood greenway.
In addition to traffic calming activities, funding has also been provided to conduct road safety audits at key intersections on the city’s High Injury Network to analyze crashes and identify engineering countermeasures using a safe systems approach.
The City of Pensacola is one of twenty-three awardees in the State of Florida.
