This includes one driving lane in each direction with a center turn lane. A 10' wide multi-use path will be constructed along the south side of Grand Avenue between 52nd Street West and 58th Street West and along the west side of 54th Street West between Grand Avenue and Rimrock Road. Sidewalk with a width of 5' will be constructed along portions of the north side of Grand Avenue and the east side of 54th Street West.
