Gaines Street

8 posts in this topic

Well, I WAS, excited about gaines street and the transformation of the corridor, but nothing is going on. When do they plan to tear down the warehouses and are they shrinking the road down to 2 lanes?

WHEN WHEN WHEN? Its pathetic Ive read the entire gaines street plan, and I see no action,

I feel your pain & frustration on this project too TDT.

Maybe this process will begin when they complete the convention center hotel over at the civic center? :(

Work on Gaines Street is expected to begin within 16-18 months, upon the completion of the the Right-of-Way aquisitions, and a few other things.

We now have over 3 threads for Gaines Street... lets try extra hard to see if there is an existing thread before we make a new one.

Laney... the intent is to not make Gaines another road that we can use to speed from east to west, but to make it a more flattering part of the downtown area. It will be enhanced to make it more pedestrian friendly, more urban friendly, as this corridor is expected to become Tallahassee's next premier destination downtown. TONS AND TONS of citizen participation went into making this plan a reality, and its only a matter of time before the actual work will begin and the potential of the corridor will be revealed. You will be proud.

Yes the capacity of the road will be two lanes in one direction. A side street will be used to carry traffic in the other direction. This will make travel safer for both motorist and pedestrians, and also allow for sidewalks and landscaped medians.

ok. for some reason i was thinking gaines was going to be one lane one way, and one lane the other way. two lanes going one way will be cool. i am excited about the revitalizations that will be going on in that corridor.
