East Johnson Street Public Meeting
Public Involvement Meeting for East Johnson Street (North Baldwin Street to First Street)
Please Note: This project includes the area from Fordem Avenue to First Street and First Street on the southern side (future Public Market site). Residents are encouraged to attend to find out proposed changes at the intersection with East Johnson Street.
You are invited to attend the second public involvement meeting for the reconstruction of E. Johnson Street in the city of Madison. The project extends approximately 3,000 feet along E. Johnson Street from N. Baldwin Street to First Street.
- Festival Foods, 810 E. Washington Ave Community Conference Room
- Thursday, November 10, 5:30 - 7:00pm
The meeting will be conducted in an informal, open house format to allow for dialogue and individual questions and comments. The city of Madison and design consultant representatives will be available to discuss the proposed project and address questions or concerns.
The proposed project will include reconstruction of the existing roadway from just east of N. Baldwin Street to immediately east of N. First Street. The proposed project includes pavement reconstruction, curb and gutter, widening along the west side of N. First Street, existing sidewalk spot replacements and repairs, new multi-use path/sidewalk, Americans with Disabilities Act compliant curb ramps, storm sewer lateral replacement, new street lighting, replacement of sanitary sewer and water main, new pavement marking, and new signs. The project will include fitting existing drainage patterns into the reconstruction. The existing storm sewer system will be used to control stormwater. The proposed project layout has been revised based on feedback obtained during the first PIM back in April of 2016. The presentation will focus on the revisions.
Tenney Park and the Yahara River Parkway (including the Yahara River Bridge) are adjacent to and cross the project and considered public park areas [Section 4(f) properties] and/or are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are City of Madison Landmarks. Impacts are anticipated to these properties; however, these impacts are not anticipated to be adverse. Temporary easements are anticipated to accommodate grading in Tenney Park and the Yahara River Parkway. The project will not be reconstructing the Yahara River Bridge, however the pavement and sidewalk on the bridge is proposed to be reconstructed to accommodate a multi-use path crossing the bridge as discussed above. The project team is seeking your input on any concerns individuals may have with how the project is impacting these resources. Persons with a concern for or knowledge about historic buildings and structures and archaeological sites are encouraged to attend this meeting or provide comments to the local units of government or the consultant.
The project is currently in the preliminary design phase with design completion anticipated in August 2018 and construction anticipated for 2019. Information regarding the project can be found on the project website.
