Capital Improvement Plan
Nearly $85 million will be allocated to transportation upgrades. The upgrades are designed to improve traffic flow as well as to provide more safety to motorists.
Anyone who has sat in traffic around Gainesville can tell you, the traffic lights in the city of Gainesville are definitely not synchonized. But that will be changing as the new traffic management system is installed, which will synch all but one of the traffic signals in Alachua County. The one traffic light that will not be synched up with the rest in the county is at a crosswalk in the city of Alachua.
Because that project was approved in past years, it's been signed, sealed, delivered and ready for installation. However, many of the projects on the new five year capital improvement plan still need funding. Over the next five years, the Public Works Department hopes to find enough funding to resurface some roads, widen others, and build more sidewalks and roundabouts.
The new proposal also includes complete facelifts for some roads, such as Depot Avenue and SW 62nd Boulevard.
$17 million worth of new buses for the RTS Public Transit System are also included in the proposal.
