Project Limits

Project limits for St. Paul Avneue, Ohio Avenue, Talmadge Street, Jackson STreet, Lafollette Avenue project

The City is currently proposing the following changes with this project:

  • Reconstruct Jackson St (between Atwood & St. Paul) to a 14-ft wide street with one-way, southbound-only traffic and maintain no-parking on either side on this block. This would eliminate the ability for eastbound-traffic on Atwood to turn left onto Jackson St, a turning movement that has shown to be unsafe, especially with the nearby path crossing.
  • Reconstruct Ohio Ave (between Atwood & St. Paul) to a 20-ft wide street with one-way, northbound-only traffic and parking only on the easterly-side of the block, eliminating parking on the westerly-side (in front of Ohio Tavern) and providing additional terrace space.
  • Reconstruct St. Paul Ave (from western-end to southern-leg of Corry St) to a 25-ft wide street, bringing the south(garden)-side curb in 1-2 ft to provide traffic calming and minimize construction impacts to the community garden.
  • Construct raised, table-top crossings of the Capital City Trail at Jackson St and Ohio Ave, as well as a new BCycle station adjacent to the path at Ohio Ave.
