Project Schedule and Status

16, 2010 Public Meeting.

The current study, which began in June 2010, includes preliminary design for the conversion of the Route 34 expressway from Union Avenue to Park Street into a network of city streets. A second phase of the study will address permitting, final design and construction phase services, and is scheduled to be completed by 2016. The overall project schedule calls for preliminary engineering to be completed in 2011 and final design in 2013, leading to construction in 2014 and opening of the completed roadway improvements in 2016.

In October, the City received a $16 million TIGER Grant award to support first phase infrastructure improvements, which will ready the first parcel of land for construction in 2011.

Additional documents pertaining to the study can be found at the Reports/Publications page.
