traffic impact on killearn estates


DID YOU MISS THE   

TOWN HALL? 

WE DISCUSSED THE

TRAFFIC IMPACT ON

KILLEARN ESTATES

 

KHA’s May monthly Board meeting was dedicated to information about Phase I of the Welaunee Extension to Shamrock South.

 

  • What is the traffic impact on Killearn Estates?

  • Will commercial traffic increase?

  • How will the extension affect property values?

  • Are there other options to relieve traffic in the NE?

 

City and County Commissioners were invited.

Blueprint staff was available to answer questions.

Other neighborhoods affected by the project were also invited.

 

Key points of Shamrock Phase I from NEGateway.com

       Purpose and Need

  • The project is needed to provide an alternative route for existing users of Centerville and Miccosukee Roads.

  • Ongoing and proposed development of the 7,000-acre Welaunee Critical Area Plan, which is nearly entirely located between Centerville and Miccosukee Roads, will result in increased congestion on these two Canopy Roadways, should a new transportation facility not be developed.

  • In addition, the project is anticipated to provide relief to US 319 (Thomasville Road) and US 90 (Mahan Drive)—the first phase of a new regional gateway into Tallahassee.

    Traffic Analysis Methodology Report

  • Community benefits from the Northeast Gateway: Welaunee Boulevard include, but are not limited to, those listed below.

  • The Northeast Gateway will relieve congestion and potentially avoid costs for upgrades at Thomasville Road and U.S. 90. The project location map.

  • The Northeast Gateway will relieve congestion on Miccosukee Road and Centerville Road, two scenic and protected canopy roads.

  • The mixed-use centers throughout the 7,000-acre Welaunee Critical Planning Area will become additional magnets for economic development.

  • The Welaunee Greenway, with an iconic footbridge across I-10 and connected to the Miccosukee Canopy Road Greenway, will ultimately create a 17-mile trail loop. 

  • Contact City and County Commissioners
