Westside Student Corridor Gateway
The Westside Student Corridor Gateway project creates a southwest gateway for the community by linking the improved Capital Circle corridor to the urban core via a widened Pensacola Street. The project also reduces flooding issues around Tallahassee Community College and Gum Road by increasing stormwater capacity in the Gum Creek/West Drainage Ditch. The sidewalks and bicycle lanes constructed as part of this project will create safe and convenient access for the residents of the area. The construction of the TCC/FSU/FAMU Connector Trail links all three institutions of higher learning to the facilities at Innovation Park.

Provides bike lanes and sidewalks along Pensacola Street and constructs new sidewalks on Gum Road, Aenon Church Road, and Dome Level Road.
Establishes connectivity to Innovation Park by constructing the TCC/FSU/FAMU Connector Trail; linking all three institutions of higher learning.
