Gresham Smith to Design Multimodal Connections along Lake Jackson Greenway
Gresham Smith has been selected to lead transportation planning efforts for a new multimodal connection along the Lake Jackson Greenway in Tallahassee.
The purpose of the project is to create new multimodal connections between Lake Jackson Archaeological Mounds State Park, Okeeheepkee Prairie Park and Lake Ella with access to the Meginnis Arm Landing and the Centre of Tallahassee. The firm will design five miles of bicycle routes and shared-use trails to enhance transportation options along the Lake Jackson Greenways. Community engagement for the project will be conducted in the spring, and project updates will be posted at www.BlueprintIA.org/projects/lake-jackson-greenway/.
The project is being managed by the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency, which administers regional mobility, gateway, connectivity, community and quality of life projects funded by the one-cent sales tax that’s collected in Leon County.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Blueprint on improving quality of life and transportation options within Leon County,” said Tyler Strickland, P.E., RSP1, Florida state transportation leader at Gresham Smith. “Blueprint is an innovative agency that’s an important community resource for the greater Tallahassee area, and we’re proud to work on making the Lake Jackson Greenways more friendly for both pedestrians and cyclists.”
