Downtown Traffic Patterns

 

Below are the improvements currently underway:

Intersection improvements at U.S. 17-92 and Horatio Avenue (all approaches) will be underway until January 2014.  The U.S. 17-92 and Horatio Avenue project is part of the implementation of the Maitland Area Transportation Study completed in 2004 and is funded by the Florida Department of Transportation. 

The following improvements are underway and are reflected on the "Horatio Avenue Traffic Patterns Map" as an attachment. 

Horatio Avenue

·        The length of the two turn lanes on Westbound Horatio Avenue heading South on U.S. 17-92 will be extended to allow for additional vehicles to stack in the turn lanes.  This will increase the number of vehicles which can proceed through the intersection and reduce traffic congestion at this signal during peak hours.

·        As a result of the extended turn lanes, the median at Horatio Avenue and Swoope Avenue has been adjusted to allow for vehicular traffic to turn Southbound on Swoope Avenue. 

·        Horatio Avenue between Maitland Avenue and U.S. 17-92 will be reduced by one lane each direction at project completion.  This will allow for installation of a mast arm style signal to replace the current span wire signal.  Although this will reduce traffic flow at the intersection, improvements underway to Northbound U.S. 17-92 at Horatio Avenue combined with the Maitland Boulevard Off-Ramp will provide a more convenient alternative to cut through traffic which currently utilizes Maitland Avenue to access Eastbound Horatio Avenue.

U.S. 17-92

·        There will be an additional left turn lane for Southbound U.S. 17-92 heading Eastbound on Horatio Avenue.  The resulting dual left turn lanes will be extended to allow for additional vehicle stacking.  This will increase the number of vehicles which can proceed through the intersection and reduce traffic congestion at this signal during peak hours. 

·        As a result of the extended turn lanes, the median at U.S. 17-92 and George Avenue will be closed.

·        Sybelia Parkway has been opened Southbound for access to the Publix Plaza and businesses on North Swoope Avenue for vehicles Southbound on U.S. 17-92.
