This project is designed to provide pedestrians with continuous sidewalks on both sides of Starkey Road for the approximately 1.5 miles between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive. This existing segment of Starkey Road is a four-lane corridor with roadside ditches, short sections of intermittent sidewalk and a posted speed limit of 45 mph.
The proposed design for this project includes constructing continuous five-foot-wide sidewalks on the east and west sides of Starkey Road, with related drainage improvements. In addition, crosswalk striping will be added and all pedestrian crossings, including driveway entrances, will be improved to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. Drainage channel 10 along the north side of Willow Avenue will be improved as part of this project.
Starkey Road, between Ulmerton Road and East Bay Drive.
