These improvements will incorporate: separated bike lanes, ADA ramps, updated pavement markings and road diet for improved vehicular and pedestrian safety, traffic signal modernizations, LED energy efficient lighting upgrades, pedestrian refuge island and the replacement of the structurally deficient bridge over Racine Avenue and Norfolk Southern Railroad Spurs.
