Hague Avenue improvements
city of Columbus will reconstruct and improve Hague Avenue between Broad
Street and Sullivant Avenue. The improvements will increase safety for motorists, pedestrians
and bicyclists, help protect parked vehicles and upgrade water and sewer lines. Plans include:
- Lowering and reconstructing
roadway down to its base, install new full curbs to improve drainage, build new
sidewalks, Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps and driveway
aprons and plant street trees
- Building bump-out curbs at the
intersections of Hague Avenue with Olive Street, Palmetto Street, Fremont
Street, Wicklow Road and Roland Sunker
Place. Bump-outs help protect parked
vehicles, reduce crosswalk length and calm traffic.
- Adding pavement markings
bicycle sharrows all along Hague plus school-zone markings for West Broad
- Updating water lines installed
100 years ago for properties on the east side of Hague Avenue; west side was
updated in 2000
