Project Details

Lane changes will include bike lanes in each direction on every block of the project, except for the southbound direction between 2nd Street S and Washington Avenue S. In general two of the four travel lanes will be removed between 2nd Street S and Riverside Avenue. Several turn lanes and painted medians will be added in the 2nd to Riverside section.

Striping will be in permanent tape between Riverside Avenue and Washington Avenue. A layer of seal coating will be laid over the roadway surface, and permanent tape will be laid into this layer. The remainder of the project will be milled and overlaid as part of the 35W Detour Route Rehabilitation Project, and striping will be in paint.

No parking changes will take place.

Bike racks will be installed.
