Brooklyn Road Diet

About

With construction already underway on Downtown Jacksonville’s first protected bicycle lanes, a road diet in Brooklyn will likely result in the city’s first two-way cycle track. Although road diets can succeed at volumes of up to 23,000 vehicles a day, they tend to be most successful on roads carrying less than 19,000 vehicles per day. According to Florida Traffic Online, Park Street currently has an Average Annual Daily Traffic (AADT) traffic count of 2,250 vehicles each day. With this in mind, the City of Jacksonville has allocated $2.2 million in the FY 18-19 budget to add a cycle track to Park Street by reducing the current four-lane undivided roadway into a two-lane street between Forest Street and the Lee Street viaduct.
