Mahan Drive (US 90) Corridor Study

Client: Leon County Board of County Commissioners
Location: Tallahassee, FL
Size: 4.5 Miles
Service: Community Design & Regional Planning

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

Mahan Drive is classified as a principal arterial and geographically traverses east/west through Leon County. The purpose of this corridor study was to assist local residents and governmental decision makers in the control of commercial, retail or non-residential development within the Mahan Corridor from SR 261 (Capital Circle), a major arterial, to Interstate 10.

The plan's intent was to create a vision for the corridor through land-use, transportation facilities and neighborhood preservation measures that achieve a positive image for the corridor. The following were goals of the study:

  • Identify strategies to manage increased development pressures; 
  • Preserve neighborhoods; 
  • Foster a mixture of land uses in existing and proposed nodes along the corridor; 
  • Integrate land uses and transportation; 
  • Keep the roadway safe and accessible for all modes of transportation;
  • Preserve safety and efficiency of existing transportation facilities through access management; and
  • Ensure the corridor continues to be an attractive gateway into the City of Tallahassee.

Proposed land use and transportation recommendations were provided for both short term and long term implementation. Four Future Land Use Categories were established for the study area in order to implement the study objectives and achieve the community's values and goals for neighborhood preservation and development control. Transportation recommendations addressed multi-modal opportunities, traffic operations, safety, aesthetics and access management.
