Project overview

The project is substantially done. 
  • The final steps in the project are to install durable pavement markings (i.e., crosswalks and bike lane markings) and to complete final crack sealing.
  • Final crack sealing is scheduled for May 31st and is anticipated to last one day. During this time, the bikeway will be closed.
  • Crews will install durable pavement markings over a three-week period, beginning the week of June 3rd. This will require temporary closures of the bikeway for short segments and short-term closures of crosswalks while work is completed. Closures at any one location will be less than one day.

As part of this work, we’re improving safety for all people, with a focus on:

  • Encouraging safer travel speeds
  • Improving safety for people walking
  • Upgrading the street corners to include accessible curb ramps
  • Creating an all ages and abilities bicycle route
