Street Sections
 
 
Existing condition of SR 7: In its current, form State Road 7 exists as a typical six-lane divided highway provisioned with narrow sidewalks on both sides of the road and minimal median and sidewalk street trees. Numerous curb-cuts exist which access parking areas that typically are provided at the front of buildings. Buildings are set well back from the street, and widely separated from one another, providing no sense of enclosure of definition of space along the street. Building height to street width ratios in all cases fall short of those need to properly define space. Transit vehicles share the road with all other vehicles.   Possible future condition of SR 7: Consideration is being given to adding an additional through lane to the six that already exist and dedicating this additional lane to use by transit vehicles. This would widen the section of SR 7 to the point that it would be difficult for pedestrians to easily cross. In addition it could effectively preclude ever providing the sense of spatial enclosure necessary to transform SR 7 from a highway into a beautiful street, since in many cases it would be impossible to provide adequate building height, the parking to support the required building height, and adequately wide sidewalks to support such uses within the space available.
   
Recommended future condition of SR 7: The Citizen’s Master Plan recommends keeping SR 7 as a six-lane section and accommodating transit vehicles within an existing lane. Curb-cuts along SR 7 should be consolidated and alternative routes provided by increasing the connectedness and utility of the existing street grid.
