The objective of this project is to reconstruct SE 4th Street from Depot Avenue to Williston Road. The Sweetwater Branch culvert underpass failed during the 2004 hurricanes, which impact this corridor. Therefore, it is currently proposed to be replaced with a higher capacity underpass. Improvements will also include: the addition of bike lanes, addition of sidewalks on both sides of the roadway, ADA accessibility upgrades as necessary, Sweetwater Branch culvert underpass replacement, stormwater treatment, street lighting, and aesthetic upgrades.
Project complete Summer 2022.
