Project Description:

This project provides for reconfiguring the existing 4-lane undivided roadway to a complete street with two (2) 10-feet travel lanes separated by a two-way left turn center lane plus an on-road bidirectional cycle track, with a raised separator on the southern side of the road. The proposed improvements also include wider sidewalks, raised pedestrian refuge islands, and crosswalks at the intersections of both Jefferson Street and Central Avenue.
