Project Summary

To bypass congestion on major roadways throughout the City of Inverness, many drivers seek alternate routes via local city streets; drivers commonly use the Tompkins Street corridor because it has the most direct east to west alignment. The increased use of this corridor as a bypass route prompted the City of Inverness to study potential improvements for increasing safety and traffic operations on this route.

Hoyle, Tanner prepared a Traffic Analysis Report of the Tompkins Street Corridor for the City. The study reviewed existing operational and physical deficiencies and recommended improvements to provide better mobility through the corridor while maintaining a safe route, with the least impact to residents and businesses.

Based on the findings of the study and recommendations made in the report, Hoyle, Tanner completed roadway improvement plans for permitting and bidding. The roadway improvements included new period lighting, landscaped medians, turn-pockets at key intersections, a new bike path, and upgraded storm drainage and water utilities.
