    Shared Lane Markings​ (White to Alpine)
    ​Resurfacing and Reconstruction (Alpine to Turner)
    Complete 2016


    Project Summary
    Between White to Alpine, sharrow symbols were installed in the travel lanes to indicate vehicles and biycles share the lane and maintained parking on both sides of the street.

    From Alpine and Seward, this project resurfaced the road, installed bulb-outs to lessen the street crossing distance for people walking, better define parking, and install rain ​gardens where possible to retain and soak stormwater into the ground to filter pollutants and reduce runoff entering natural bodies of water, planted trees, installed sharrow symbols in the travel lanes to indicate vehicles and bicycles share the lane., upgraded sidewalks and ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act​, and maintained parking on both sides of the street.

    Between Seward and Turner, work included resurfacing the road, expanding the sidewalk on both sides of the street for people walking, bike parking, trees, plantings, and outdoor seating, and removed parking on the north side of the street.
