North Central Pedestrian Improvement Project

Project: North Central Pedestrian Infrastructure Improvement Program

Project Area: The North Central Neighborhood

Project Description: Improve pedestrian crosswalks and enhanced pedestrian scale street lighting

Benefits:
The proposed improvements will improve the resident’s quality of life by providing additional pedestrian amenities. These amenities include, but are not limited to:
  • curb ramps for ADA accessibility
  • curb extensions/bulbouts to reduce the pedestrian crossing street width and provide added visibility
  • crosswalks to notify drivers to expect and yield to a pedestrian
  • advance stop bars to notify drivers to stop in advance of the crosswalk
  • pedestrian refuge islands for added pedestrian protection when crossing the street
  • pedestrian scale lighting to illuminate the sidewalk and to combat safety issues
Construction Timeline:
Work began in Fall 2016 and is expected to conclude by the end of April 2017.

Anticipated Work Hours:
8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday

Expected Construction Impacts
Typical to most construction projects, you will experience the following impacts:
  • Temporary lane closures
  • Delays when traveling through construction area
  • Limited access to driveway for brief periods
The selected contractor and the on-site construction inspector will work with residents on any short term impacts.
