Construction Underway for Florin Road Improvements

Florin Road has been identified in the City’s Vision Zero program as one of the roads with the highest number of fatal and serious crashes involving pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists.

The City took immediate action to acquire federal funding to make safety improvements on the corridor on the following road segments: 

  • 24th Street to Tamoshanter Way
  • Freeport Boulevard to South Land Park Drive

Latest Updates & What’s Next

Construction will likely begin in late fall. All improvements should be complete early in 2024. Please abide by all construction signage to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
