Project Overview

This project will aims to make roadway and pedestrian safety improvements on 54th Avenue N. from 49th Street to 34th Street in Lealman. The project continues the improvements identified in the Linking Lealman Action Plan of 2019.

The existing roadway between 49th Street and the CSX Railroad crossing has four travel lanes, a center two-way turn lane and five-foot sidewalks on both sides of the road. Between the CSX Railroad crossing and 34th Street, the roadway has four total lanes with five-foot sidewalks on both sides.

The project will study several possible alternatives, including lane reductions and additions, improved pedestrian facilities, including wider sidewalks and signalized crosswalks, and investigate the benefits of adding traffic calming features.
