FDOT: Pedestrian-Friendly Upgrades Needed On St. Augustine's Anastasia Blvd.
A busy St. Augustine boulevard needs upgrades to make it more pedestrian friendly. That’s the conclusion the Florida Department of Transportation reached after a safety study. The results were presented Wednesday at St. Augustine City Hall.
Surveyors walked Anastasia Boulevard from the Bridge of Lions to just past the Alligator Farm. It’s a highly-traveled section of State Road A1A.
Among the issues listed, inspectors found:
- many crosswalk markings to be faded or missing.
- sidewalks and ramps covered in dirt, plants and debris
- several broken or uneven sidewalks.
The report also recommends installing bike lanes on the stretch of road the next time it’s resurfaced.
