Matrix completed a mobility study for the City of Crestview’s historic downtown area in 2021 and determined Main Street needed an improved ADA-compliant pedestrian amenity zone along store fronts to create a safe and vibrant socioeconomic hub for all residents and visitors. Main Street consisted of a two-lane roadway with stop-controlled intersections and diagonal street parking. To optimize the amenity zone, our Team recommended a reduced number of parallel parking spaces that allow for landscape features such as benches, planters, and lighting within the amenity zone without blocking pedestrian walkways and storefronts or undermining ADA-compliant design features.
Matrix lead the design efforts for Main Street and surrounding side streets, ensuring proper grading, drainage, and ADA compliance for the walkways. We coordinated closely with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), a primary source of project funding, to obtain plan approval. Matrix also supported the City of Crestview by providing procurement support and preparing the Invitation to Bid (ITB). The design and bidding process all followed FDOT design criteria and specifications.
