Destin, Fla. – The Destin City Council asked city staff for an assessment/study to be conducted that would collect data and provide recommendations to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow in the area of Stahlman Avenue, to include Zerbe Street and US Highway 98. The Stahlman-Zerbe-US98 area during the tourist season is regularly congested with both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Options are sought to increase the efficiency of traffic flow and enhance pedestrian safety. The purpose of this study is to provide city staff and elected officials with opportunities, and their associated challenges, that would be reasonably anticipated with any future re-construction or re-alignment project.
Volkert Engineering has expressed interest in assisting the city with this project and is qualified to perform this work. Volkert Engineering is an active participant in the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) 3R Project (which includes the area of interest), and will provide the city with opportunities, challenges and cost analyses to move forward with improving pedestrian safety and traffic flow in this area. The Destin City Council has provided a budget of $50,000 for this project.
