Garfield Avenue Complete Streets

Garfield Complete Streets

Garfield Avenue is a corridor of regional significance serving local and regional motorist in route to commercial and residential neighborhoods, schools, local parks and bordering cities.  The roadway corridor has a dated design that can be enhanced in a manner that considers the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorist to improve community access. 

The Garfield Avenue Complete Street Improvement Project is being implemented to enhance pedestrian, bike and motorist safety, improve traffic circulation, address deferred maintenance issues and beautify the corridor.  It entails the installation of a Class I bike path, Class II bike lanes, and Class III bike routes, along with pedestrian improvements and sidewalks, construction of raised median islands, ADA curb ramps, curb and gutter, sidewalk, pedestrian crossing improvements, solar flashing Beacons and re-striping of traffic markings.

On February 28, 2023, the City Council awarded a construction contract to Sequel Contractors Inc.  Construction is planned to begin on May 22, 2023 and be completed in about 8-10 months.

Construction activities will include the use of heavy equipment, traffic control, lane closures, and will temporarily impact parking.  Some construction activities will impact noise levels, such as during concrete removals.  Construction activities will be scheduled to minimize impacts, where feasible. Construction signage will be placed with sufficient time to provide information needed to accommodate parking conditions. 

The contractor will be issuing a notice of construction with more information and contact information prior to start of construction activities.
