The year-long construction project to repave Greenwood Avenue from Mason to Morrell and build a traffic circle around Austin Blair Park is finally complete!
The scope of the project and weather delays caused this $2.3 million project to fall severely behind schedule.
Drivers going through this area will now be welcomed by a new traffic circle, fresh pavement, new curbs, sidewalk ramps, sidewalks, street lights and traffic signals.
Below ground, new water and sewer mains have been installed.
There’s also increased pedestrian access through more pedestrian crossings and wider sidewalks.
This project was started to provide increased traffic flow in and out of downtown, and provide a refreshed corridor for this neighborhood.
Greenwood Avenue was plagued with potholes and hasn’t been resurfaced in decades.
