Located just north of downtown Tallahassee, the Midtown area provides a vibrant mixture of commercial uses surrounded by close-in neighborhoods. As the area has grown in vibrancy, increased private sector investment has occurred as has public sector transportation proposals to improve the mobility of the area.
The Midtown Area Transportation Plan builds upon the above efforts by identifying and reviewing potential changes to the transportation network to enhance Midtown’s mobility.
Phase I of the Midtown Plan was completed in 2018 and provided a traffic operations study to gain a better understanding of the travel patterns in and around the Midtown as well as the identification and evaluation of potential mobility improvements. Presented to the CRTPA Board on February 20, 2018, more information on this phase is available by clicking here.
Phase II was initiated in the Spring of 2019 and builds upon the options identified and evaluated in Phase I. This next phase focuses on obtaining significant public input on the transportation needs of Midtown with an emphasis on bicyclists, pedestrians and transit users.
