The Villages Roadways/Greenways
MPA has provided planning and design for extensive public roadways within The Villages DRI, including Buena Vista Boulevard, Morse Boulevard, CR 466, CR 466A, Marsh Bend Trail (CR 501), Warm Springs Avenue among others. Additionally, A signature aspect of The Villages is the comprehensive network of recreation areas and greenways providing total open space connectivity within the community, achieved by 90 miles of greenways featuring 16′ wide multi-modal trails, 40 miles of which have been designed integrally with the 4-lane landscaped parkways. Planning these parkways required weeks in the field, assessing the numerous specimen Live Oaks on the property, and staking out the alignment of the parkways/greenways to preserve and showcase these superlative trees. Project services included pre-engineering planning and route design for presentation of existing trees, layout and design of street lighting, multi-modal recreation trails, all landscaping and irrigation, preparation of all contract documents, and construction administration.
