The Airport Gateway will create a beautiful, safety-enhanced, multimodal gateway between Downtown and the International Airport by improving seven miles of roadway; constructing over 12 miles of new sidewalks, trails and bicycle lanes; and enhancing the safety of this corridor and transportation network. Additional project goals include expanded investment in Southwest Tallahassee-Leon County, which has seen a historic underinvestment; supporting local growth of the high-tech sector in areas such as Innovation Park , which houses the National Magnetics Field Lab; and improving neighborhood safety by constructing dedicated entrances to Innovation Park and the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.
The Southwest Area Transportation Plan, which analyzed current and projected traffic and identified improvement opportunities, was completed in fall 2019. Building on this Plan, planning and design services for this project are anticipated to be advertised in spring 2020.
