Roundabouts are the Future of Depot Avenue in Gainesville
GAINESVILLE - The traffic lights on one stretch of road will be eliminated in Gainesville...to make way for a new traffic pattern and hopefully a better traffic flow.
On Depot Avenue from 13th all the way to Williston or Waldo Road, a new project will replace the traffic lights with roundabouts.
The City of Gainesville wants to create an East-West gateway in Gainesville and improve driver and biker harmony.
This stretch of Depot Avenue from 11th to Main Street is the current phase of the project.
Chip Skinner, spokersperson for Gainesville Public Works: "when all the segments are complete you will be able to go all the way to Waldo or Williston road depending on which end you are looking at without any traffic signals they will all be roundabouts."
The project has a price tag of $6.7 million dollars and the stretch from 11th to Main street is just one segment out of four on the project.
One other segment has already been completed.
