  • Adding additional lanes on side streets to improve intersections
  • Upgrading traffic signals
  • Improving bicycle and pedestrian connections and crossings, including new 10-foot shared-use paths on both sides of Route 28

FCDOT held a Community Information Meeting about the Route 28 project on April 3, 2018.
