UCF Area Pedestrian Safety Study


Project Limits:

Orange County is conducting a pedestrian safety study along approximately 4.6 miles of roadway near the UCF area. The study corridors are Alafaya Trail from Challenger Parkway to McCulloch Road, University Boulevard from Rouse Road to Alafaya Trail and McCulloch Road from Alafaya Trail to North Orion Boulevard.

Purpose

The purpose of this study will be to identify pedestrian and bicycle crossing needs and safety issues along the study corridor, develop alternative improvements strategies to address the identified travel needs and safety issues, and identify viable safety improvements. This study provides a comprehensive picture of the area pedestrian environment and traffic operations, which helps identify potential pedestrian crossing facilities and other short-term and long-term solutions and strategies.

Public Involvement

Throughout the process, a “Core Group” committee, composed of key agencies and stakeholders has helped guide the study by providing recommendations and “on the ground” information. The Core Group members were handpicked for their problem-solving expertise in areas of transportation engineering, law enforcement, compliance, student housing and relations and public administration are integral to the development of this study’s recommendations. The Core Group includes members from:

  • Florida Department of Transportation
  • Orange County Public Works Department
  • Orange County Sheriff’s Office
  • MetroPlan Orlando
  • LYNX
  • Florida Highway Patrol
  • Bike/Walk Central Florida
  • UCF Major Student Housing Complexes
