Project Description

The project installed bike lanes along Freeport Boulevard from 4th Avenue to Sutterville Road.  To do so, the previous configuration of 2 lanes of traffic in each direction changed to 1 lane in each direction separated by a two-way left turn lane.  Curb, gutter and sidewalk reconstruction and modifications to existing signals and striping were performed.

Cervantes Park, between 10th and 11th Avenue, was expanded to the west to match the curb line along Freeport Boulevard. Within the new space, new landscaping, a pedestrian path with benches and public artwork was added.

Benefits

The project has Improved bicyclist and pedestrian safety by providing striped bike lanes, reducing vehicle speed, improving accessible routes, and providing additional enhanced crosswalk locations. The park improvements have improved pedestrian safety by reducing the crossing length between 10th and 11th Avenue, as well as providing additional recreational space.

Costs and Funding

Total project cost was $2.4 million. The project was funded through local transportation funds.

Schedule

Construction was completed in December of 2016.
