Bay-Pecan Intersection Improvements

Bay-Pecan Improvement Project
The project will realign Bay Street to form a perpendicular intersection with Pecan Avenue. The realignment of the intersections will cause the motorists to slow for turning movements into and out of Bay Street.

What's happened? The acquisition of real estate is complete. The City is waiting for a finalized contract from the Railroad before the bid phase can begin. 

What's next?
 The bid phase will begin in June/July 2012.

A Traffic Calming Project

The project will realign Bay Street to form a perpendicular intersection with Pecan Avenue. The realignment of the intersections will cause the motorists to slow for turning movements into and out of Bay Street. The realignment will create a more standard stop condition, by eliminating the excess asphalt in the turning radius. The project will also add sidewalk where there is a gap in the existing sidewalk network.

Objectives:

  • Realign Bay Street at Pecan Avenue
  • Construct sidewalk to complete the connection of the intersection
The project was indentified due to the sub-standard intersection design and need for traffic calming.
