"The proposed work for the project along SR A1A/Indian Creek Drive includes repaving and restriping the road, repairing sidewalks, curbs and gutters, upgrading pedestrian ramps, installing new traffic signs, installing shared-lane bicycle markings (Sharrows), eliminating parking spaces along SR A1A/Indian Creek Drive to reduce line of sight obstructions, installing signage at the 43 Street approach to restrict left turns from 43 Street to southbound SR A1A/Indian Creek Drive, and relocating two palm trees as a result of the median upgrades. The proposed work for the project on SR A1A/Collins Avenue/Indian Creek Drive along 43 Street includes upgrading storm water drainage systems, installing a pump station near SR A1A/Indian Creek Drive, adding a pollution control structure to the drainage system to protect water quality, and relocating palm trees along SR A1A/Indian Creek Drive.
