Adams Street from 36th Street to 49th Street

Street Improvement Project

The purpose of this project is to preserve and extend the service life of existing facilities and enhance safety by using safety conscious design. The improvements would satisfy existing and future traffic needs and conditions in a manner conducive to safety, durability, and economy of maintenance. The need of the project is to address substandard curb and pavement conditions; narrow pavement; substandard curb ramps; substandard inlet tops; and appropriate pedestrian crossing devices.

Scope of Work

This project would improve approximately one mile of Adams Street between 36th and 49th streets. The project proposal includes concrete replacement and repairs, grading, milling, and resurfacing of the street. It would reconstruct pedestrian ramps, curbs and gutters, and replace the pedestrian crossing signal near North 46th Street to increase safety for vehicles and pedestrians.
