Tallahassee, Florida – October 20, 2011 -
Blueprint 2000 will hold a Public Meeting regarding the design and construction of the Franklin Boulevard Flood Relief Project on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at City Hall, Commission Chambers located at 300 South Adams Street. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide the community with information related to stormwater improvements along Franklin Boulevard that involve enclosing the open ditch and installing a box culvert. Currently, flooding impacts residential and commercial properties as well as vehicular traffic within the neighborhood. The project corridor extends from College Avenue to Tennessee Street.
In addition, staff will also discuss the potential inclusion of bike facilities, sidewalks, and reducing the road
from four lanes to two lanes. Visual displays and plans will be available for review. Members of the Blueprint
2000 project team will be available at the meeting to answer questions.
This project is funded by a grant from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Construction is anticipated to begin January 2012.
