Project Overview and Benefits
The 41 Street Corridor Revitalization Project includes enhancements to the community including gateway entry features, landscaping with an expanded shade tree canopy, lighting improvements and a new streetscape design for better pedestrian mobility and to create a main street feel.
This project is part of the city’s overall G.O. Bond program. The total project budget is approximately $15 million, which has been sub-divided over tranches 1 and 2. About $100,000 has been previously spent on street lighting upgrades.
An updated schematic design package was presented on December 8, 2022, to the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon 41 Street Committee. The Brooks + Scarpa team shared plans that built upon the previous AECOM concept, including enhanced landscaping that incorporates native and drought-resistant materials, as well as introducing plaza features for pedestrian use. Shade trees are being provided in addition to existing palms along the 41 Street Corridor.
This draft design has been presented to city departments as well as the Florida Department of Transportation for their initial review.
The team will be hosting small-group meetings with property owners and businesses to share the updated design and gather feedback. The overall project corridor has been divided into three zones so each area may receive specific details (please see attached map for reference). The three areas include:
- Zone 1: 41 Street between Alton Road and Biscayne Waterway
- Zone 2: 41 Street between Biscayne Waterway and the Forge
- Zone 3: 41 Street from just east of the Forge to Pine Tree Drive
