Resurfacing and restriping of Wright Street, including crosswalks at Glenn Avenue and Magnolia Avenue.
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 inclusion of a communal garbage compactor is a possible addition to this project.
The project will begin this Fall and is anticipated to be completed this Winter. D & J Enterprises, Inc. is the contractor for the project.
