8. SW 6th St. Entrance
Another step in P.K. Yonge’s total campus revitalization is the reorientation of the main school entrance from SW 11th Street to SW 6th Street. The new main entrance, located at 1200 SW 6th Street, promises significant improvement to traffic flow and school safety.
Plans for the SW 6th Street entrance were developed in tandem with plans for Phase II: Secondary construction. The project includes widening the existing entrance; resurfacing, widening, and slightly altering the roadway; installing sidewalks and parking areas, replacing and upgrading fencing; installing security systems, lighting, and gates; and landscaping.
With the main campus entrance facing SW 6th Street, P.K. Yonge will enjoy a much greater sense of connectedness with Depot Park, The Cade Museum, and other exciting local developments. Our neighborhood has seen much change in recent times and P.K. Yonge is eager to be part of the future of downtown Gainesville.
