Description: Reconstruction using a ’road diet’ concept, where four lanes will be reduced to 3, providing one lane in each direction and a center turn lane. This concept makes room available to build non-motorized facilities such as a sidewalk on the south side and a bikepath on the north side.
3/3/21 - Majority of watermain work has been completed and the roadwork is now back in progress ready to start in March, mainly between Lewis & Jackson on the south side of 14th St. Behind-the-curb work will also be occurring project-wide to build sidewalk, bike path, driveways and landscaping. Completion is now estimated for fall 2021.
