Last Updated: 11/11/2019

Construction Update

Construction is complete for 2019.

Contractor will install high friction surface in 2020.

Project Description

The reconstruction of N. Bassett St. will include replacement of the water main, sanitary sewer main and laterals, installation of new pedestrian scale lighting, and replacement of the pavement, curb, driveway apron, and sidewalk as necessary. The limits of this project are on N. Bassett St. from W. Dayton St. to W. Washington Ave.

This project also includes a test of proposed modifications to the bike lane and parking lane on this portion of N. Bassett St. These proposed changes include moving the bike lane to be adjacent to the curb, and the parking lane will be relocated to be between the right travel lane and the bike lane, away from the curb. The bike lane and parking lane would then be separated by a 2ft. buffer and plastic delineators. These proposed changes are the result of a corridor study.
