Wyatt Reconstruction Project
Oct. 15 Update:
The City’s contractor is continuing to make progress on the Wyatt Way Reconstruction project. The majority of the work is still primarily focused on the west side of the project limits, between Grow Avenue and Nicholson Place, where the last testing of the water mains is expected early next week before going into service. Also, within this zone of the project, the contractor will begin the layout for curbs and sidewalks.
Within the work zone east of the Grow Avenue intersection, the contractor has completed installing a majority of the storm drainage improvements. The current project schedule has the majority of work, including installation of drainage improvements, sidewalk and roundabout improvements at the Madison intersection, extended through early December, weather permitting.
What to expect during construction
People walking and driving should expect detours in and around the project area. More information regarding the project schedule and detour routes will be posted on the weekly Traffic Notification page here.
The Wyatt Way Reconstruction and Safety Improvement project will improve safety for all modes by constructing a complete street with sidewalk and bike lanes; preserving vehicle level of service and improving non-motorized level of service and connections; and rehabilitating poor pavement conditions by constructing road surfacing with appropriate drainage.
A central component of the project is a mini roundabout at the intersection of Wyatt Way and Madison Avenue to improve the level of service. Other improvements include sidewalks, bike lanes, paved shoulders, and lighting. Bicyclists approaching the intersection will have the choice of entering the roundabout or using ramps to access the multi-use sidewalks and crosswalks. The large existing trees on Wyatt Way, just west of the Madison Avenue intersection, will be preserved.
The project will include safety improvements for all users of Wyatt Way, including:
- A mini roundabout at the Wyatt Way-Madison Avenue intersection to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety;
- Widened, multi-use sidewalks with ramp access for bicyclists;
- Improved ADA ramps and street crossings;
- New sidewalks on both sides of Wyatt Way between Madison Avenue and Lovell Avenue;
- Drainage and water main replacements; and
- Lighting, landscaping, and rainwater quality improvements.
