Installation of sidewalk on the east side of East University Drive from Samford Avenue to Carolyn Court and the north side of Samford Avenue from East University Drive to the school property. Replacement of the culvert under Samford Avenue and the addition of pedestrian signals at the East University Drive/Samford Avenue intersection.
This project is part of a series of transportation and related infrastructure projects to support construction of the new Auburn High School. A series of projects are underway to create a continuous pedestrian path on Samford Avenue extension between Glenn Avenue and University Drive, along University Drive from Samford Avenue to Glenn Avenue, and along Glenn Avenue from University Drive to Samford Avenue extension. Several sections of sidewalk currently exist and were constructed in association with recent developments including the Highlands Church and the Prudential Real Estate office complex on Glenn Avenue. This project will complete the sidewalk on East University Drive and Samford Avenue. Additionally, the large culvert near the intersection of East University Drive and Samford Avenue will be replaced.
The project began in early June and is anticipated to be completed in the Fall. Hudmon Construction Co., Inc. is the contractor for the project.
