Improve pedestrian safety
Provide a safe route to school for students
Floating Feather is scheduled for construction in the summer of 2010 after school is out for the summer. The project will be completed before school resumes in the fall.
Why improvements on only one side of the street?
In an effort to maximize tax dollars some pedestrian improvement projects are being constructed on only one side of the street. This enables ACHD to improve pedestrian safety, while at the same time allowing the District to do more pedestrian projects throughout the county.
The side chosen depends on several factors, including: pedestrian safety, amount of gaps in existing sidewalk infrastructure, impacts to property owners, and existing ACHD right-of-way. Every effort was made to choose the side that would increase pedestrian safety while making the best use of available funds. The north side was chosen for this project.
After public comments have been evaluated and addressed, the plans will be finalized and ACHD will move towards construction.
