New or rehabilitated sidewalk, ADA/AAB accessible ramps, crosswalks and pedestrian signal equipment is proposed on all four approaches to the intersection. Curbing and drainage improvements are included. Utility poles will be relocated and/or equipment consolidated. Mill and overlay of the pavement is anticipated within the project limits.
