    Project Summary
    This project separated combined sewer into dedicated sanitary and storm sewers and replaced existing curb, gutter, pavement, and drive approaches. New curb and gutter was added between Hall and Curve along with new sidewalk on the west side of the road and parking adjacent to Kensington Park. Sidewalks and ramps were upgraded to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Green infrastructure was installed, including infiltration basins and porous pavement, to soak stormwater into the ground to filter pollutants and reduce runoff entering natural bodies of water. Bulb-outs were created on the east side of the road at the Eton and Curve intersections to better define parking spaces and lesses the street crossing distance for people walking. This work was completed in June of 2017.
