The busy Division Street and Grant Avenue intersection will receive $2.2 million in improvements this spring.
The Division Street and Grant Avenue Intersection Improvement Project will include traffic signal and crossing signal replacements, as well as Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)- compliant sidewalks, stormwater infrastructure and pavement improvements.
Construction is expected to wrap up in June.
“Upgrades to the traffic signals at Division and Grant will provide needed improvements with signal timings and traffic flow through the intersection,” says Public Works Engineer Alexis Walker. “This project will also provide ADA-friendly features and help increase pedestrian safety.”
Motorists can expect one weekend closure of the intersection to complete the stormwater infrastructure component of the project. Pavement improvements will warrant various daytime closures near the end of the project. Sidewalks will also be closed periodically for the compliance improvements.
The project will be paid for through the voter-approved 1/4-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax.
