There are many good things in Orlando and wanted to share one program with you that encourages all of us to be healthier and walk more—the Orlando Walks Project.

As an avid walker it has been great to see more areas around Orlando where walking is made easier by adding new sidewalks through the Orlando Walks project. One street– Cole Road off of Corrine– in particular was finished this week. This finished sidewalk made my day, as before it was completed the street did not have a sidewalk on and had a curve—- so many times cars could not see me in the street no matter what direction I walked. I often had to jump into someone’s yard at the last minute. Now I can safely walk this street to get to the shopping area on Corrine. Thank you, the city of Orlando for making my day!

About the Orlando Walks Project:

Keeping Orlando moving continues to be a priority for Mayor Buddy Dyer. Providing multiple alternatives such as transit, bike and pedestrian forms of transportation will offer all those who live, work and play in Orlando options for getting around the City. This offers a variety of affordable alternatives to having a car and connects more of our residents with access to jobs and opportunity.

To support this priority, the City is committed to providing a safe, comfortable and connected pedestrian system. The City’s Orlando Walks Sidewalk Project focuses on establishing an interconnected sidewalk network that helps to improve public safety and to encourage active healthy living. In an effort to maximize funding and more quickly complete sidewalk gaps, the City elected to seek additional outside funding opportunities and received a Federal grant to fund the current phase of sidewalk construction.
