 Project updates

​This project will replace a bridge on Morris Field Drive that spans the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks. The bridge, which has reached the end of its functional life, will be replaced with a structure that will handle cars as well as pedestrians. The design includes bike lanes, sidewalks and wider lanes. ​

  • ​​​​To construct a bridge that accommodates multiple modes of transportation
  • To provide bike lanes and sidewalks while continuing the level of service provided along the rest of the roadway
  • To provide wider lanes or buffers to allow more separation between motorists and nonmotorists/pedestrians

​​​The following public meetings were held during the planning phase to share plans and get resident feedback. Please refer to the "project documents" are of this page for information shared at the meetings.​

To be determined

​​​​​​The Capital Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014, 2016 and 2018 and will vote on further bond financing in 2020. For this project, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published.
