Start Date: 2022
The project will improve the mile-long corridor of Matmor Road from Main Street to Gibson Road, and the half-mile-long corridor of E. Gum Avenue from East Street to Matmor Road. The improvements include pavement rehabilitation, restriping narrower travel lanes to slow traffic, adding buffered bike lanes, constructing ADA-compliant curb ramps and sidewalk repairs, installing drainage improvements, and completing traffic signal improvements.
These improvements will transform the Matmor Road and E. Gum Avenue corridors into complete streets providing improved bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicle facilities to ensure the corridors meet the needs of all modes of travel.
Construction of this two-season project is underway and our contractor will begin working to construct ADA-compliant curb ramps and perform sidewalk repairs in Fall 2022. Private utility companies will also be in the area working to move their facilities over the next few months.
Work during Summer and Fall 2022 will consist mainly of private utility relocations, concrete sidewalk and ADA ramp replacements, and traffic signal improvements.
The roadway reconstruction will take place during Summer 2023.
