These projects will improve a two mile-long corridor on Gibson Road from County Road 98 to East Street. The improvements will include:
Restriping narrower travel lanes to slow traffic
Adding buffered bike lanes
Constructing ADA-compliant curb ramps and sidewalk repairs
Installing drainage improvements
Completing traffic signal improvements to include bicycle and pedestrian actuation
The projects also include installing a pedestrian-actuated lighted crossing at California Street and lane reconfigurations or “Road Diet” that will reduce travel lanes between Cottonwood Street and West Street from four lanes to a three lane corridor consisting of two narrow travel lanes and a two-way left turn lane.
These improvements will transform this segment of Gibson Road into a complete street providing improved bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicle facilities to ensure the corridor meets the needs of all modes of travel.
Construction begins in July 2021 and will occur over two construction seasons for completion late in 2022.
Work during summer 2021 will consist mainly of private utility relocations, minor storm drain improvement, concrete sidewalk and ADA ramp replacements, and traffic signal improvements.
Most of the work in the summer of 2022 will focus on reconstructing the roadway.
