Florida State University has signed on to a plan to create more attractive and accessible roadways between Tallahassee International Airport, the school’s southwest campus and downtown Tallahassee.

Kevin Graham, executive director of FSU’s Real Estate Foundation, proposed merging the Airport Gateway plan — a project of the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency, composed of Leon County and city commissioners — with the university’s plans to further develop its 900-acre southwest campus, which lies midway between the downtown core and the airport.
