S. Alkire Street Improvements / Traffic Signal Upgrade at W. Bowles Avenue

Posted on December 21, 2018 at 8:01 AM by Lindsay Townsend

Project Scope:
This project will add a new right-turn lane for southbound S. Alkire Street to westbound W. Bowles Avenue.  This will allow for the two southbound through lanes to line up correctly with the lanes on W. Coal Mine Avenue.  Other construction activities will be:
  • New pavement, curb, gutter, and sidewalk will be constructed for the widening.  
  • A new raised concrete island will be constructed at the northwest corner of the intersection. 
  • A Redi-rock wall and concrete stem walls will be built behind the sidewalk to limit offsite grading.
  • Existing islands will be upgraded to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • The existing span wire on the traffic signal will be upgraded to a mast arm. 
Project Update (as of December 21, 2018):
This project is currently under construction.  Construction activities will continue through the end of January 2019, weather permitting.

Landscaping and irrigation work will occur in the spring.
