Project Description

When work is complete, Gibson Road will have more reliable and improved water and sewer systems, and the road will be reconstructed and restriped with narrower travel lanes, buffered bicycle lanes, and parking.  Between East and West streets the corridor will retain the current four travel lanes.  The City is proposing a reduction in travel lanes west of West Street.  This proposal includes one lane in each direction with a center turn lane similar to the existing lanes west of Cottonwood Street (this lane reduction is known as a road diet).  The project also proposes to install a lighted pedestrian crossing at California Street.  The corridor traffic volumes were evaluated and it was determined that a three lane section can accommodate traffic and improve bicycle and pedestrian crossing at California Street.
