Laporte Avenue Road and Bridge Improvements

Laporte Road and Bridge Improvements

Beginning fall 2018 and continuing through 2019, the City will be developing designs for upgrading Laporte Avenue between Sunset Street and Fishback Avenue. This project seeks to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety along the corridor by addressing deficient sidewalks and bicycle lanes, replace two functionally obsolete bridges (east of Taft Hill Road), and upgrade the arterial with curb and gutter, and other traffic improvements. Funding has been secured for the bridge replacements, and following the design process, the City will seek funding to complete other project recommendations. Bicycle and pedestrian intersection / crossing improvements will also be considered through the design process.
