Project Summary

This phase of the DBD Crosswalk and Accessibility Upgrades includes the intersections at:

  • Burlington Avenue & Mochel Drive
  • Main Street & Rogers Street
  • Main Street & Grove Street
  • Main Street and the mid-block crosswalk between Burlington Avenue & Curtiss Street
  • The pedestrian entrances on the East and West sides of the Downtown Parking Deck

All existing sidewalk materials will be replaced with colored concrete matching the rest of the Downtown Business District (DBD). All existing crosswalk material within each intersection will be replaced and topped with a highly visible and durable material in a decorative red brick pattern. The DBD crosswalk upgrades constructed in 2021 will also receive the same decorative red brick topping pattern. Burlington Ave from Main St to Washington St, and Mochel Dr from around the parking deck to Burlington Ave will also be resurfaced this year.
