The pavement on Garfield Drive is up to 50 years old and in visibly poor condition. We are pleased to announce the City will be repaving a 1.5 mile stretch of Garfield Drive between East Washington Street and Cross Creek Street in Spring/Summer 2023, following completion of a Water Services Replacement Project.
With any paving project, the City looks for opportunities to improve safety and accessibility for all road users. Improvements that will be incorporated in this project include:
- New or improved curb ramps and crosswalks
- Parking prohibition near intersections and crosswalks to improve visibility
- Roadway striping or signage elements that slow traffic, increase road users' awareness, and make roadway operations more intuitive
Join the City for a virtual community meeting (date TBD) to learn more about the project and preview the construction schedule and impacts. The City will send postcards to all addresses within 1000 feet and email those who have subscribed to project updates using the form below when meeting details are available.
