The project includes the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Elder Creek Road and South Watt Avenue. Construction of an asphalt pedestrian landing pad on the southwest quadrant and ADA compliant sidewalk ramps on the southeast and northwest quadrants of the intersection are also included as part of the project. In addition, the existing sidewalk ramps on both corners at the intersection of Elder Creek and Turner Road will be reconstructed to comply with ADA requirements. Other improvements include the construction of a 1-foot raised median on the north leg of the intersection. Furthermore, the current state of the asphalt warrants an overlay along the north and south legs of South Watt Avenue and the east leg of Elder Creek. The west leg of Elder Creek will be slurry only.
The installation of the new traffic signal will require moderate widening on all four legs of the intersection at Elder Creek Road and South Watt Avenue to accommodate the proposed striping.
