Major Roadway Opens for Traffic

Drivers in northeast Tallahassee now have a new road to travel down.

The new segment of Welaunee Boulevard, between Buford Boulevard and Fleischmann Road, recently opened to traffic. The $9.9 million project was built in two phases.

Some minor work remains, but for the most part the project is nearly finished.

The four-lane divided highway has sidewalks, bicycle lanes, curbs and storm water controls, not to mention extensive landscaping.

The city project includes over 600 trees and 2,000 shrubs.
