Green Street Corridor Improvements
Pond conducted a comprehensive study investigating the feasibility of infrastructure improvements along this historic Gainesville street. Addressing the traffic congestion and pedestrian safety along this corridor has been a challenge for decades, as the current four-lane street has no turn lanes and limited right-of-way. The Pond team conducted a series of advisory committee meetings with key corridor stakeholders to identify the issues and receive feedback on alternatives. Many context-sensitive options were developed, including an innovative cross-section to include a raised median with an inward-sloping roadway and drainage structures in the median to reduce impacts to mature trees along the shoulders. The study has been closely coordinated with concurrent roundabout feasibility studies being performed by the Georgia Department of Transportation. The study recommendations included an innovative alternative featuring implementing a median section to work with the adjacent roundabouts. Pond performed extensive stakeholder outreach and traffic analysis to support this unique concept.
