The existing intersection is offset, resulting in the need for two signalized intersections to control traffic. The offset configuration results in congestion delays and accidents. The intersection realignment will reduce traffic congestion and improve highway safety.
This project is a recommendation of the Community-Based Vision Plan for the Dewey Avenue Corridor/Maplewood Neighborhood, completed in January 2008 for the Maplewood Neighborhood Association. The project involves the realignment of the offset intersection along Dewey Avenue at Driving Park Avenue.
The realignment of this offset intersection will reduce congestion and improve highway safety while also improving the bicycle/pedestrian environment and lowering vehicular emissions due to idling.
The project is a City-administered federal and state aided project through the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) program.
The project includes the rehabilitation or reconstruction of pavement and realignment of the Dewey Avenue and Driving Park Avenue intersection.
The project will also include the installation of new:
- New Curbs
- New Catch Basins
- Driveway Aprons
- Concrete Sidewalks
- New Decorative Street Lighting
- New Gateway Features
- New Garden
- Traffic Signal
- Partial Water Main Replacement
- New Trees
