The project extends approximately one mile along Victory Parkway between East McMillan Street and Martin Drive. It includes:
- Various safety improvements designed to calm traffic and make the area safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles
- Rehabilitation of the Park Avenue Bridge over Kemper Lane
As part of the planned improvements, the city will reduce the number of traffic lanes to one in each direction with center turn lanes. Intersection improvements such as bump-outs may also be installed to reduce the distance for pedestrians to cross and encourage slower vehicular traffic.
- Bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure such as a shared on-street lane or adjacent path also will be added
- New streetlights will be installed between East McMillan Street and the intersection of Eden Park and Park Avenue
- Crews also will repave the entire length of the project site using an eco-friendly additive that reduces smog
The bridge rehabilitation along Park Avenue includes structural improvements that will eliminate the current weight restrictions. In addition, a new sidewalk and railing will be installed that incorporates better lighting. The driving surface of the bridge also will be replaced.
