Harrison Avenue Corridor Reconstruction

This project will result in the complete reconstruction of the 9th Street to 20th Street Harrison Avenue corridor into a modern Strategic Regional Arterial. The project scope includes new concrete pavement, upgraded drainage facilities (including reconstruction of the paved ditch), a reconstructed box culvert, new water main, major intersection improvements, decorative street lighting and traffic signals, pedestrian accommodations (sidewalk and multi-use path), and relocated overhead utilities. Construction on the project began in April 2016, and currently all of the north pavement lanes (for westbound traffic) have been constructed, along with the drainage ditch, and the north half of the box culvert. Construction will continue in 2017 with an expected completion date of Summer 2018.
