Main Street Improvement
This state funded project will improve vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian safety and reduce vehicular queues at the intersections of Main Street and West Street, as well as Main Street and South Street. Work will include resurfacing of the intersection approaches, improved pedestrian and bicycle accommodations and access, new signage and pavement markings. A traffic signal will be installed at the Main Street and West Street intersection, which will be coordinated with the existing signals.
A complete street is one that provides safe and accessible travel alternatives for all modes - walking, biking, transit, and motorized vehicles. Complete Streets designs contribute toward safety, health, and economic vitality that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Having multimodal options to travel between home, work, schools, recreation, and retail destinations are essential in promoting more livable communities.
