County Engineer George Webb: Okeechobee Boulevard to be reconfigured to multiway boulevard | WalkableWPB

This is great news. Long-time County Engineer George Webb has seen the light and agrees that a more pedestrian friendly Okeechobee Boulevard is needed. Getting across that roadway now, if you are coming from the Convention Center to City Place is only a thing for the hale, hearty and fearless. His concept would be to establish a "multi-way" which would provide places for pedestrians to more safely rest as they wait for traffic to pass. The addition of shade trees would help during our warm and humid summer months. Click title for link to the WalkableWPB blog.
