“There are multiple plans affecting the project’s interaction with Gator Bowl Boulevard, including the realignment of Gator Bowl Boulevard, and the JTA autonomous vehicle lane configuration currently under design. Consequently, the development’s northern boundary, including ingress and egress from Gator Bowl Boulevard, are not finalized. Staff recommends that the developer continue to coordinate their design with the City’s Traffic Engineer, the DIA, and Public Works.”
