What improvements are being made?
The department is updating sidewalks along the corridor to meet Americans with Disabilities act requirements. In addition, the department is updating many of the signals along the corridor. Specifically, the department is updating signals at 24 locations. Some of those updates include new ADA compliant pedestrian heads, signal detection, ADA compliant pedestrian buttons, and uninterruptable power supplies.
Are bike facilities included in this project?
Since traffic volumes along Lindbergh Boulevard along this stretch are fairly high, Lindbergh will remain signed to remind drivers to share the road with cyclists.
What are the impacts from the project?
Impacts during the construction should be relatively minimal. Sections of sidewalks will be closed for periods as crews work on the updates. Drivers can also expect one lane closed in either during non-peak traffic hours while signals and sidewalks are updated. Business owners with multiple driveways will have at least one access point into their business at all times through construction. Crews will work on half of the access point at a time when there is only one entrance/exit from a business. Residential driveways are too small to complete half at a time – driveways will need to be closed for several days when they are being worked on. We anticipate that the contractor will be able to share a general timeframe when they anticipate being in the area -- probably about a week or two in advance.
