Southern half of Grant Avenue Parkway expected to be nearing completion this spring


The southern half of the ongoing Grant Avenue Parkway project from Sunshine Street to Grand Street is nearing completion this spring with the final asphalt roadway surfacing and landscaping expected to take place in April.

“We’re excited to be wrapping things up in the small section of work between Sunshine and University in March,” explains Public Works Project Manager Leree Reese. “After that last piece of the work is done on the south end of the project, contractors will lay the final asphalt paving surface along the entire southern half of the route. Once it’s paved and striped, the roadway will reopen to two-way traffic.” 

Landscaping is also expected to be installed this spring including a mix of trees and low growing plants and shrubs. 

Construction on the Parkway continues north of Grand Street where the roadway remains one-way southbound only. Property acquisitions and utility work continues between Grand and Walnut streets. The completion timeline of this portion of the route is dependent upon acquisition of necessary right-of-way.

The Downtown portion of the project will include improvements on Mill Street, including advisory bike lanes between Main and Boonville avenues, as well as roadway, sidewalk and lighting improvements between Main and Campbell. The remaining downtown loop improvements along College Street to Boonville will consist mainly of bike lane striping.
