Document Description
The strategy is to reconstruct the roadway's structural section to meet current design standards and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The roadway between Oberlin Road and Broadway would be narrowed. to improve pedestrian safety. Existing paved roadway shoulders would be widened to 8 feet at various locations in the northern portion of the project area. Most sidewalks, including approximately 90 curb ramps and 190 driveways, would be replaced throughout the downtown corridor. Various utilities would be replaced, relocated, and/or protected in place. Water pipelines would be replaced or protected in place, propane pipelines would be relocated or replaced, and fiber optic/telephone/electrical lines may need to be relocated at some locations. Utility covers would be adjusted to grade and light poles would be relocated. Approximately 85 storm-drain culverts (totaling approximately 7,000 lineal feet) under the roadway would be replaced, repaired, or undergo maintenance (Table 1). In addition, approximately 14,000 lineal feet of storm-drain pipe and associated drainage inlets would be installed to accommodate the 10-year storm event. Actuated pedestrian signals would be installed at various crosswalks to meet current ADA standards, a closed-circuit television (CCTV) would be installed at the intersection of SR 3 and SR 263, and existing signal systems would be upgraded on SR 3 at the intersection with Moonlit Oaks Avenue, Oberlin Road, and Miner Street. See NOC for full details.
