Riverplace Boulevard Complete Street

Riverplace Boulevard Complete Street Overview

Duval County, FL

GAI’s Community Solutions Group led public involvement and conceptual design exploration of several alternative scenarios for a place-based reconstruction and “road diet” for Riverplace Boulevard. The project had been long identified as a top-priority project of the South Bank CRA, focusing on the need to balance auto movement with increased bike/pedestrian safety. The objectives also addressed the need for a “placemaking” approach that would support emergent development, including residential, retail services, and a regional desire for increased access to the Riverwalk. The preferred concept included buffered bike lanes, increased sidewalks, safe crossings, narrowed vehicular lanes, and contemporary solutions to streetscape and urban stormwater drainage.

Following the vision, the GAI team worked with the City of Jacksonville on project implementation. As prime consultant, GAI provided all landscape architecture and civil engineering while coordinating the balance of the team. Today, the project is successfully bid, and groundbreaking and construction is scheduled through early 2019.
