Park Avenue Streetscape

Construction Update

The project is currently out to bid. 

Regular construction updates will be provided as they occur. 

Project Overview

In accordance with the Lake Wales Connected Plan, the Park Avenue Streetscape project focuses on converting an existing over-sized one-way lane to two right-sized lanes. Existing diagonal spaces will become parallel spaces in order to make room for a wider, curbless sidewalk with street trees. The existing use of public space on Park Avenue is 40% people space and 60% vehicle space, the new design features 67% people space and 33% vehicle space. Key features of the design include:

  • Curbless design
  • Conversion of angled parking spots to parallel parking spots
  • Implementation of shade trees on the north side of Park Avenue to provide maximum shade throughout the day
  • Hanging flower baskets from streetlights
  • Two-way traffic on Park Avenue to improve mobility
