Project overview

We will be improving and maintaining these streets in several ways:

  • Add paint to include bike lanes
  • Reduce the width of the travel lanes
  • Replace sections of curb with new concrete
  • Grind off the top layer of asphalt pavement
  • Add new asphalt pavement

This resurfacing project provides an opportunity to improve the overall safety along the corridor and bring this street more in line with our city policies and goals such as the Complete Streets policy, Vision Zero policy, and the Transportation Action Plan. The segments of W 58th Street and Sunrise Drive are identified in the Transportation Action Plan as a near-term low stress bicycle corridor.

Project goals

The goals of this project include:

  • Improve overall safety along the corridor for all users
  • Enhance comfort and predictability of all users
  • Support existing and future bicycle demand and improve bicycle network connectivity
