Project Description

Potential Project Improvements:

Project Status:

  • Blueprint has been collaborating with FDOT on improvements to the North Monroe corridor, since 2014. Since then, FDOT has invested over $10.3 million in enhancements with the majority of investment supporting the Blueprint project goals.
  • Additionally, as a result of continuous Blueprint collaboration and identification of leveraging opportunities, FDOT plans to invest over $7 million in safety and aesthetic improvements along the North Monroe Corridor, including enhanced landscaped medians and a sidewalk from John Knox Road to Lakeshore Drive.  This will bring the total FDOT investment on the North Monroe corridor to over $17.4 million, since 2014.

The North Monroe Gateway Project will provide funding to develop gateway enhancements for North Monroe Street from I-10 to 7th Avenue, creating an attractive entrance along the heavily used corridor into Tallahassee, Leon County.

The Citizens North Monroe Corridor Task Force is a County appointed focus group charged with looking at key issues of crime, homelessness and improvements on the North Monroe Street Corridor from Fred George Road to Tharpe Street.

The Task Force final report had recommendations for infrastructure improvements along the corridor that will help support their findings and overall quality of life.
