Work is to begin Wednesday, Aug. 1, on intersection improvements and new traffic controls that will enhance safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists at the Scenic Drive South-4 Street South intersection.
This construction will connect the newly opened Bike Boulevard along 7 Avenue South and 4 Street South to the existing regional multi-use pathway system along the south side of Scenic Drive South.
Traffic will detoured around this intersection during the initial phase of construction, which is scheduled for four weeks, weather permitting.
Other safety enhancements to this intersection will include:
- New traffic control lights installed on Scenic Drive South and 4 Street South
- New pedestrian-activated traffic control lights for crossing Scenic Drive South
- New traffic control lights for the Bike Boulevard connection to the regional pathway system
- Permanent closure of the 9 Avenue South intersections with 4 Street South
