Kentucky Avenue Widening and Complete Streets Project (CIP # 04-07)

The City of Woodland has awarded the contract for the widening and reconstruction of Kentucky Avenue to Teichert Construction. Construction is scheduled to begin May 1, 2017 and be completed by late 2018.

A public information meeting will be held at The Yolo County Farm Bureau located at 69 W. Kentucky Avenue, Woodland, CA 95695 on Wednesday, April 26th at 5:30 pm to discuss the project. Attendance is encouraged as this will be an opportunity to learn about the project scope, traffic impacts, and to have questions answered regarding the project.

During project construction there will be significant traffic impacts to Kentucky Avenue including reduced access, lane closures and some short-term full road closures. Access to adjacent homes/businesses will be available for the duration of the project. During the project, signs will be placed requesting that drivers use alternate routes. Signs will also be placed to notify the public that the project is funded by Measure E and State/Federal Grant Funding.

The project includes widening Kentucky Avenue from East to West streets. Between East and College streets, the new roadway will have 2 lanes in each direction with turn lanes and raised medians. Between College and West streets the roadway will have 1 lane in each direction with a center turn lane. The project will construct landscape, separated sidewalk, drainage improvements, raised medians, a new traffic signal at College St., and modifications to the signals at West and East streets. When complete, the roadway configuration will include buffered bike lanes between East and West Streets as well as narrowed travel lane widths and a reduced speed limit of 35 mph.
