Pilaklakaha (PK) Avenue Streetscape
S&ME assisted with the master planning, conceptual streetscape design and construction documents for Auburndale’s five-block Pilaklakaha Avenue streetscape project. The project entailed a lane reduction from four lanes to two lanes, a multipurpose trail, on-street parking and bioswales in this section of roadway that transitions from residential to the City’s historic downtown area. Multiple sustainable stormwater strategies were utliized on this project, including the use of permeable powers in the parallel parking spaces as well as the use of rain gardens, which pretreat and detain the water for infiltration prior to outfall into new stormwater basin. A portion of the project is funded by the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
