The Churchwell Road CRA (Community Redevelopment Area) is pretty much done. They were painting the yellow stripes last week and painting the 127 space public parking lot yesterday. The ribbon cutting is on April 16, 2008 at 10:30 am on the new Churchwell Bridge, unless it rains, in which case it will be under a tent in the new parking lot close to Front Beach Road. More after the break.
Construction began in April 2007 and is slated to be the shortest of all redevelopment projects. I think the original build time was to be around 15 months, so they are a little ahead of schedule. Project details include:
- Widen existing roadway
- Relocate the overhead utilities underground
- Build a parking area for the nearby beach access point – 127 spaces
- Build sidewalks and bike lanes
- Replace old bridge (paid for by FDOT)
The other CRA project currently under development is the Beckrich Road redevelopment. I’ll have more info that in a couple of weeks.
