An intersection study was performed in March 2014 for the State Road 15 (U.S. 17 / S. Orange Avenue) at State Road 16 (Leonard C. Taylor Parkway) intersection in Clay County. The study revealed that the intersection experienced approximately nine crashes per year from 2010 to 2012. The prominent safety concerns included the southbound and westbound rear-end crash trends, the north-south left turn crash trend, and the angle crash trend exiting the State Road 16 gas station driveway. As a result of the study, FDOT has decided to improve the safety and operational characteristics of the intersection and adjacent driveways through turn lane additions, lengthening of existing turn lanes, using protected-only signalized left turns, and construction of a traffic
separator along SR 16 for access management.
