Meeting Agendas & Minutes
State Appropriations for Roadway Improvements
UPDATE: The Florida State Legislature has approved $1,500,000 in State funding toward teh Windermere Rd and Main Intersection Improvement Projects!
The Town has submitted Appropriation Requests to the State of Florida to obtain funding for Roadway Improvements.
Road Improvements (Maguire Road & Windermere Road, 6th Avenue & Main Street, and Chase Road & Main Street) – Continued growth to the southwest of Windermere has increased the cut-through traffic through Town. 75% of the cut-through traffic is generated by neighboring communities. Traffic congestion continues to increase along roads such as 6th Avenue, Main Street, and Chase Road. Congestion has become an unavoidable problem for drivers, particularly during peak hours. The goal of this project will be to reduce the cut-through traffic on local roads, reduce accidents, reduce vehicular contaminants which filter into the lakes from cut through traffic on the dirt roads, create safer streets, enhanced opportunities for local businesses to thrive, and ease the traffic congestion which currently exists.
Specifically, the Town is looking to replace the stop signs at Chase Road & Main Street and Maguire Road & Windermere Road with roundabouts, and would like to improve the existing roundabout on 6th Avenue & Main Street.
