The Gainesville City Commission will hold a workshop Tuesday evening to discuss planning and receive public input on the future Northwest Eighth Avenue road project.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the A. Quinn Jones Center, 1108 NW Seventh Avenue.

Design work on the road project is in the early stages, and, at this point, the timeline for construction is not yet determined.

There has been debate over the possibility of reducing the roadway to one travel lane in each direction from approximately Northwest 23rd Street to Northwest 34th Street with in-street bicycle lanes and wider sidewalks.
