Gaines Street Revitalization - Roadway and Infrastructure Improvements

Client: City of Tallahassee
Location: Tallahassee, FL
Size: 1.5 mile corridor
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Highlights:
Contact Staff: James P. Sullivan, P.E.
 

As the oldest paved road in the City of Tallahassee, Gaines Street was once a bustling industrial corridor adjacent to the railroad. However, despite its significance as a vital transportation corridor that links downtown Tallahassee, Florida State University, the State Capitol and Tallahassee Regional Airport, Gaines Street had been in decline for several years. A variety of small businesses, vacant properties and a roadway in need of repair characterized this non-descript commuter route. 

Genesis was retained by the City of Tallahassee  to create within the corridor an 18-hour, pedestrian friendly destination in the downtown district that would attract new investment and a variety of uses to the area. Creating a “sense of place” for this key transportation corridor was a priority of the revitalization effort and guided many aspects of the project.

Gaines Street was redesigned and rebuilt -- from a 2-way, 4-lane road to a 2-way, 2-lane street with on street parking, landscape and hardscape treatments and extensive accommodations for pedestrians and cyclists. The existing four-lane undivided roadway was composed of a wide array of materials and was in poor condition. Significant roadway cracking required removal of the roadway pavement, base and subgrade. A stabilized subgrade was installed along with a new base material and superpave asphalt. The existing roadway also contained a minimal stormwater conveyance system with severely deteriorated pipes and catch basins. New pipes and inlets were retrofitted to collect runoff and minimize the spread of water over the roadway. Some previous commercial and industrial uses along the corridor had caused contamination of the existing soils, which were remediated where necessary.

The Gaines Street Revitalization has successfully created a multi-functional transportation corridor  that accommodates various modes of travel and incorporates numerous transit stops, extensive pedestrian facilities and gathering places. Expansive sidewalks, street furnishings and lighting, on-street parking, sharrows, landscaped medians and bio-swales all contribute to its success. More than a transportation corridor, Gaines Street has become a destination with a unique "sense of place" and has attracted significant investment and development to the area.
