An open house took place on May 31, 2018 to share information about four projects in the Parkwood and The Plaza corridors:
The Plaza Street Conversion
Parkwood Avenue Streetscape
Parkwood Avenue Improvements
25th Street Connection
The goals of these projects are to improve travel conditions for vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users. The project teams shared design concepts and renderings, collected feedback and answered residents' questions.
Survey work is being conducted in the project area and is expected to be complete in early February 2018. The project will then move into the design phase, during which the project team creates specifications for constructing the improvement option selected in the planning phase. The full project schedule will be updated on this web page at the start of the design phase.
Design continues on this project and 50 percent design are complete. The vertical elements that will be placed in the buffered bike lanes, such as tubular markers, reflective paddles (similar to what is used on the nose of a pedestrian refuge island) or reflective raised ceramic channel markers, are currently being evaluated and a final treatment will be determined soon.
The final design plan review is underway. Real estate acquisition is 75 percent complete and the project is expected to start construction the fall of 2020.
Real estate acquisition is complete and the project team is preparing the project for the bid phase. During this phase, the City uses a competitive bidding process to procure the services of contractors to build the project.

This project began in July 2021 and is currently in the planning phase. A planning contract has been negotiated with the design engineers and a survey of the project area has been completed. During the planning phase, the project team works with the community to identify and evaluate options for making the improvements needed to accomplish the project's goals. The phase ends with the selection of an option to be implemented. The project team will host a public meeting in the fall of 2021. Details will be shared once they are determined.
A planning report and conceptual plans will be prepared in early 2022.

This planning phase of this project is nearing completion. During this phase, the project team works with the community to identify and evaluate options for making the improvements needed to accomplish the project's goals. The phase ends with the selection of the best option. Trail alignments connecting Park South Drive to Park Road Park are being studied, especially with respect to the project's goal of minimizing impacts to properties. The design phase is expected to start in March of 2019. During the design phase, the project team will developed the detailed plans, specifications and other information needed to construct the project.
This project is currently in the preliminary design phase, during which the project team creates the detailed plans needed to construct the improvements selected during the planning phase. Subsurface testing will be conducted for the pedestrian creek crossing foundation design. The preliminary plans are scheduled to be complete by the end of 2019.
The conceptual design was completed earlier this year and survey was completed in May 2019 to further refine the alignment. You can view the concept plan here.
