Project Description

Conversion of Wright Street to a two-way street, along with the addition of sidewalk on the west side, reconstruction of the existing sidewalk on the east side, as well as the addition of decorative pedestrian lights.

Additional Information

Recently, two large scale student housing developments, accessing Wright Street, were approved. The current one-way street configuration with on-street parking will cause traffic delays at the intersection of Wright Street and West Glenn Avenue necessitating the installation of a traffic signal. In lieu of installing a traffic signal the City Engineer recommended that the street be returned to two-way traffic to facilitate ingress/egress. A major overhaul of the street is necessary to ensure the proper functioning and safety of pedestrians that will traverse the street.

The project began in May and is anticipated to be completed in the Fall. JLD Enterprises, LLC is the contractor for the project.
