These are frequently asked questions regarding the SR 436 transit corridor study.
The end goal of the Study is to arrive at a set of potential improvement strategies that are implementable and supported by the SR 436 Corridor communities. The strategies will be coupled with an action plan for implementation and next steps.
The City of Orlando, Orange County, Seminole County, and the Florida Department of Transportation jointly funded the SR 436 Transit Corridor Study.
LYNX, together with its partner agencies, is conducting the SR 436 Transit Corridor Study to understand the needs, issues, and opportunities along the SR 436 Corridor as it relates to improving transit mobility and access. Based on this understanding, alternative improvements will be developed and evaluated based on how well each one can meet the Corridor’s needs. The end goal of the Study is to arrive at a set of potential improvement strategies that are implementable and supported by the Corridor communities.
The study is expected to run for 18 months through the Fall of 2018. The schedule of the various project phases is shown here.
Funding will depend on the type of improvements identified. Many transit projects, as well as pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure improvements are funded jointly by Federal, State, and local funds.
We will start by identifying the problem(s), then the needs along the corridor. We will then develop a long list of alternatives to address those needs. We will consider a full range of alternatives, utilizing the latest and most innovative ideas to identify short- and long-term solutions. The entire Study process, including the identification and evaluation of alternative strategies will be collaboratively done with all our partner agencies and with strong input from the Corridor communities.
