8th Street Safety Enhancements

The project focuses on East 8th street between K Avenue and Palm Avenue to increase the safety of drivers and pedestrians with improvements including a new signalized intersection, enhanced crosswalks, ADA improvements and traffic calming. Another aspect of this project is the construction of a retaining wall on the North and South side of East 8th street between K Avenue and L Avenue to prevent any further erosion of the weathered slopes adjacent to the sidewalk. While improving safety there are various streetscape enhancements such as new sidewalks, pedestrians ramps, landscaping and paved median islands.
