[ARCHIVED] Kentucky Avenue Widening and Complete Streets Project

PRESS RELEASE

City of Woodland

300 First Street

Woodland, CA 95695




A public information meeting will be held at The Elephant Shack located at 39492 Kentucky Avenue, Woodland, CA  95695 on Monday, June 18th at 5:30 pm to discuss upcoming traffic and access changes associated with the Kentucky Avenue reconstruction project. 

The project contractor, Teichert Construction, is scheduled to pave the newly built roadway between West and College streets in mid-June. Once paving is complete, the contractor will shift traffic to the new roadway and begin reconstruction of the existing pavement in this same area. 

Attendance at the public meeting is encouraged as it is an opportunity to learn about the current status of the project, upcoming changes to traffic and access and to have questions answered regarding the project.

The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2018.  During the remainder of the project there will continue to be significant traffic impacts to Kentucky Avenue including reduced access, lane closures and some short-term full road closures.  Access to adjacent homes/businesses will continue to be available.  Signs continue to be in place to notify the public that the project is funded by Measure E and State/Federal Grant Funding and that all businesses are open during construction.

When complete, Kentucky Avenue between East and College streets, will have two lanes in each direction with turn lanes and raised medians.  Between College and West streets the roadway will have one lane in each direction with a center turn lane.  The project will construct landscape, separated sidewalk, drainage improvements, raised medians, a new traffic signal at College St., and modifications to the signals at West and East streets.  The roadway configuration will include buffered bike lanes between East and West Streets and narrowed travel lane widths to accommodate a reduced speed limit of 35 mph.

For questions regarding construction or the public meeting, please contact Michelle Gudahl, Teichert Construction, at mgudahl@teichert.com or 530-304-9312. For questions regarding the project design or scope, please contact Diana Ayón, City of Woodland, at diana.ayon@cityofwoodland.org or 530-661-5820.
