Central Avenue Road Improvements will reconstruct Central Avenue from Shiloh Road to 32nd Street West. The improvements include: widening Central Avenue to a five-lane section; a roundabout at 36th Street West (including a connection on 36th Street West to the south); a roundabout at 38th Street West; 5-foot sidewalk along the north side of Central Avenue; 10-foot multi-use trail along the south side of Central Avenue; and street lighting throughout. The schedule for the project is as follows:
March 27th: Public bids from Contractors
April 9th: City Council to award Contract
Early May: Start of Construction
Early October: End of Construction
The project will allow the contract a full closure of Central Avenue between Shiloh Road and 36th Street West. However, this closure will be limited to the months of School District 2’s summer (June, July, and August).
