Construction began in late 2021 and will be completed approximately three years later. Crews are working in multiple locations simultaneously. Construction will occur in all three Seminole Heights neighborhoods: South Seminole Heights, Old Seminole Heights, and Southeast Seminole Heights.

  • Work is ongoing on Florida Avenue. Crews poured the last of six (6) stormwater inlet openings on January 23, 2024, and the sidewalks have been restored.
  • This location is currently undergoing a final review before installation of the final layer of asphalt to ensure there are no conflicts with existing pavement, driveways, and/or utility structures.
  • The final layer of asphalt will begin two (2) weeks after inlet tops are approved by FDOT.

Frierson Avenue

  • Crosswalk striping at the intersection of Florida Avenue will occur simultaneously with the striping of Florida Avenue.

Caracas Street West of I-275

  • The guard rail will not be installed for some time as the contractor for the I-275 work needs to maintain access from this street.

  Central Avenue south of Hillsborough Avenue

  • Rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB’s) have been ordered for the Wilder Avenue crosswalk and will be installed as soon as they arrive, which is anticipated the first week of February 2024.
  • Update: The City has requested a change in manufacturers. The new RRFB’s are expected to be delivered in mid-June.

Central Avenue north of Hillsborough Avenue

  • Central Avenue from Mohawk Avenue to Hanna Avenue is paved with the first layer of asphalt. The remaining driveway and right-of-way restoration is ongoing. The final layer of asphalt is expected to be completed by the end of April.
