Project Schedule / Status:
The project is nearing completion of the design and review phase. Jefferson County's goal is to bid out the project for construction at the beginning of 2021.

Project Scope:
The S. Alkire Street Improvements project will widen the east side of the roadway to allow two northbound lanes, left turn lanes, and a bicycle lane. The project will also include the installation of sidewalk, curb and gutter, and storm sewer. The project will improve the level of service of the roadway while providing pedestrian access.

Traffic Impacts:
During roadway widening, most of the work will occur within the existing ditch. There will be times when S. Alkire Street may be reduced to one lane of travel in each direction through the project site. During shoulder work and the temporary reduction in travel lanes, the speed limit will also be decreased.
