Gainesville awarded $8 Million USDOT grant to redesign University Avenue
The City of Gainesville’s most famous thoroughfare will get a complete redesign thanks to an $8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The systematic transformation of University Avenue from busy main artery to community gem will cover a 4.15-mile stretch of roadway.
Within years, slower traffic, narrowed lanes, landscaped medians and raised crosswalks will make the corridor safer for neighbors in the nearby residential districts, the lively downtown area and by the University of Florida campus.
