First Public Open House
Nearly 150 people attended the first public open house May 25 to share their concerns as well as ideas for improvements to West A Street. Almost a third of those attendees completed a survey to assess the current conditions related to several issues.
Here’s what we heard
65% of the respondents drive on West A Street west of Coddington Avenue several times per day and 43% of the respondents drive on West A Street east of Coddington Avenue several times per day.
When asked general thoughts on West A Street, most respondents replied with 5 main themes:
- storm water drainage
- roadway surfacing
- traffic flow
- pedestrian and bicycle access
- construction concerns
Several area businesses also provided comments on how their staff, customers and suppliers access their business and the need to maintain their operations during and after construction.
Where are we now?
Since the last open house, the project team has completed the traffic analysis and is developing roadway alternatives. The alternatives will be presented at the next public open house October 19.
