  • Installation of concrete bump outs at corners with ADA handicap curb ramps and high visibility crosswalks
  • Addition of 15 rain gardens and drainage improvements to capture stormwater and help reduce the City’s flooding
  • Replacement of century-old water mains and service lines to new valve boxes at the curb
  • Installation of conduit for an electrical microgrid and fiber optic cabling
  • Refurbishment of all existing street lights with more efficient lighting fixtures
  • Addition of Class II unprotected bicycle lanes from Observer Highway to 8thStreet
  • Creation of dedicated commercial loading zones
