***NEW*** New BikeHAWK to Improve Safety at Broadway Boulevard and Treat Avenue (8/19/15)
A new BikeHAWK is being installed to help bicyclists and pedestrians cross Broadway Boulevard. This project puts in a signalized crosswalk which will provide immediate benefits for all users - pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike.

Construction of the Treat Avenue HAWK
The BikeHAWK crosswalk costs $157,000 to construct. Over 90% of the temporary crosswalk's costs are for materials that will be reusable when the roadway is reconstructed.
The project is currently in the design phase, with utility relocations and construction anticipated for late 2017- 2018.

Broadway Baseline Alignment Concept Map (Part B)
The Mayor and Council also directed staff to begin conversations with impacted property and business owners, as well as updating the Major Streets & Routes Plan with this adopted alignment; and to begin compiling information regarding future land use options to be used following right-of-way acquisition.
Please note: Property negotiations will not begin until the project technical design reaches 30%, which is anticipated in Spring 2016. Funding to purchase properties, as well as the granting of authority by the Mayor and Council to enter into negotiations, must be in place before Real Estate can begin this process. These steps will happen when the design reaches 30%. An initial schedule for work beginning now through Spring 2016 is provided below.
