  • Enhance safety by reconfiguring median islands to increase lane widths and reduce crashes resulting from left turns at minor cross streets
  • Reconstruct pedestrian facilities (i.e., portions of sidewalks, curbs ramps, and driveways)
    Resurface existing roadway
  • Replace traffic signal camera detection systems with ground detection loops to reduce traffic delays
  • Install fiver-optic cable throughout the corridor to link traffic signals and improve signal phasing to reduce delays
  • Update street light fixtures with LED bulbs

Schedule

Construction start: Mid-2019
Construction completion: Early 2021
