Highland Ave Community Corridor

The Highland Ave. Community Corridor project includes traffic safety enhancements on Highland Avenue between Division Street and E. 8th Street, within the public right of way, to calm traffic, reduce collisions and improve access for pedestrians. It will reduce travel lanes from four lanes to two lanes with protected left-turn pockets at intersections to reduce rear-end and left-turn vs. opposing thru traffic collisions; provide ADA improvements, enhanced signing and striping, corner bulb-outs and refuge islands to calm traffic and reduce pedestrian crossing distances at intersection; construct landscaped islands mid-block to calm traffic and beautify the corridor; convert parallel parking to angle parking on the east side of the street to provide more parking and improve access to local businesses.
