Sligh Boulevard and Columbia Street Improvements

City of Orlando
Orlando, FL

Project Description

The City of Orlando Sligh Boulevard (RQS 13-0346) project will reconstruct the existing roadway to improve the transit system in the downtown area. Sligh Boulevard is a collector road within the South Downtown section of the City of Orlando. This section of roadway serves as a Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) connector for the state highway system between Interstate 4 and the Amtrak/Sunrail station.

Sligh Boulevard currently consists of two 17′ through lanes, one in each direction, and 8′ on-street parking in both directions within 50′ of total pavement width. The proposed typical section consists of two 11′ through lanes and a 12′ dual left-turn lane with 8′ on-street parking in both directions. The design also includes a raised crosswalk/intersection table at Sligh Boulevard and Copeland Street, which provides for a continuous pedestrian connection, improving ADA accessibility to the Orlando Amtrak station.

Columbia Street is currently two travel lanes of varying width (minimum 13′) with 8′ on-street parking along the north side of the roadway. The proposed improvements will include widening to achieve two 12′ travel lanes and 8′ on-street parking. The project will also realign Columbia Street across the railroad tracks for a more direct intersection.
