Hilltop West Broad Street Streetscape

DESCRIPTION AND BENEFITS:

This project will deliver enhancements to West Broad Street in the Hilltop from the City’s western corporation limit just east of Wilson Road to Terrace Avenue. A streetscape project was completed on W. Broad Street between Terrace Avenue and Highland Avenue in 2016. This new project will pick up at the western terminus of the previous streetscape with improved sidewalks, traffic signals, crosswalks, street lighting, and street trees. Upgrades to the traffic signals, crosswalks, and street lighting within the limits of the 2016 project will also be performed.

Current Status (as of 9-20-2019)

The City is engaging its consulting team to perform detailed design of the streetscape outside the curbs. The roadway will be resurfaced under a separate ODOT/City Urban Paving project coordinated with the City’s streetscape construction. The resurfaced roadway will include 5 travel lanes with one lane of dedicated on-street parking and off-peak parking on the opposite side of the street.
