FDOT to Host Cervantes Street Pedestrian Safety Improvement Workshops

The Florida Department of Transportation is holding two public workshops regarding the U.S. 90 (West Cervantes Street) Pedestrian Safety Improvement project. The workshops will be held Tuesday, July 16 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Brownsville Community Center, 3200 W. De Soto St., Pensacola and Tuesday, August 13 from 2-4 p.m. at the Fricker Community Center, 900 N. F St., Pensacola.

Proposed improvements include reducing the size of traffic lanes, adding crosswalks and pedestrian-controlled signals, and constructing a center median with a low barrier. Improvements may include the addition of new signals and upgrades to existing signals, as well as supplementary lighting at existing intersections and crosswalks. Construction is estimated at $7.5 million with work anticipated to begin fall 2020.

Maps, drawings, and other information will be on display. There will be no formal presentation, however, FDOT representatives will be available to discuss planned improvements, answer questions and receive comments.

The workshops are being held without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, or family status. Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation services (free of charge) should contact Tommy Johns, FDOT Project Manager, via telephone at 850-260-3215, email, or by mail at 1074 Highway 90, Chipley, FL 32428 at least seven days prior to the workshops.
