Project Background and Funding
Between 2004 and 2016, over 90 collisions occurred at the project intersection, with one resulting in a fatality. To address the unsafe conditions, the city applied for and was awarded $3.1 million in federal Hazard Elimination Program funds and also applied $700,000 in transportation funding to the project; the total project cost is $3.8 million.
A public meeting was held on April 16, 2015, to present the project design and other project information and gather feedback from the community. A summary of the feedback received at the April 16 meeting is included here.
