Park Avenue Enhancements, Speedway to Ft. Lowell

PROPOSED WORK:  Installation of a five-foot wide walking path and six-foot wide bicycle lanes along Park Avenue from Speedway north to Fort Lowell Boulevard. Water harvesting areas will be incorporated along the walking path in various locations.

NEW - - CONSTRUCTION UPDATES:

February 2014 Update - 60% design under review with the consultant. Will present the 60% plans to the Neighborhood Association representatives around mid-March. After a walk-through field review, it appears at this time that a combination of concrete and decomposed granite would be the best materials for the walking path. Water harvesting areas are still being evaluated.

October 2014 Update - The 60% plans were presented to the neighborhood in March. Comments were reviewed and plans were adjusted. The Engineering consultants are finishing up the 100% construction documents to submit in October. TDOT will be submitting documents to ADOT for construction funding in November. We estimate a construction start date of April 2015.  The City will schedule a pre-construction meeting with the neighborhoods to introduce the contractor and present the construction schedule.
