Why is this project being done?

The scope of this project is still under development. ​A main focus will be to improve poor pavement and upgrade parts of the​ stormwater system within the corridor. It will also provide the chance to address objectives in the city's Comprehensive Transportation Plan (PDF)​. There will be public input into this project. ​These things will guide the ​scope determination and move the project forward into design.​​

What work is proposed?

The Earhart Road Project will have many benefits to residents through enhancements to multiple transportation modes. Proposed updates include:

  • Repave the entire length of Earhart Road with in the City Limits.
  • Improve intersections with mini roundabouts to slow vehicles and efficiently move traffic in all directions.
  • Construct new sidewalks to get rid of several existing gaps.
