SE 47th Terrace Streetscape Project Overview

Welcome! We’re working diligently to design and build an improved streetscape in South Cape on SE 47th Terrace from Coronado Parkway to Del Prado Boulevard.

Why design a new streetscape?
The South Cape Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the City of Cape Coral identified SE 47th Terrace as a key district where funds could be put to good use by improving its roadway and pedestrian paths. These improvements will position South Cape for future growth bringing needed infrastructure updates while heightening its appeal as an entertainment destination.  In turn, these improvements will bring added value to businesses in the corridor.

What does the proposed design include?

The proposed design for the SE 47th Terrace Streetscape Project involves the reconstruction of the existing roadway to include a roundabout at the intersection of Vincennes Boulevard and     SE 47th Terrace, addition of wide multi-use paths to both sides of the roadway and incorporation of beautification enhancements along the corridor as well as installation of water and sewer upgrades.

Why a roundabout?

At SE 47th Terrace and Vincennes Boulevard, several intersection designs were considered.

A roundabout is proposed as the safest option, and is a recommended intersection design by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for its safety enhancements. In a roundabout, traffic yields to right turns only and pedestrians are crossing only one direction of traffic at a time, and traveling a shorter walking distance too.

Current FDOT policy on roundabouts states that “Roundabouts shall be evaluated on new construction, reconstruction and safety improvement projects, as well as anytime there are proposed changes in intersection control that will be more restrictive than the existing conditions.”
