Project Overview

Following the sanitary sewer replacement work on Gorham St. in 2020, the City is planning to resurface the Gorham Street pavement in 2021. In most locations, this will involve a mill and overlay of the pavement surface and replacement of the pavement markings. The City is also proposing to install bumpouts at the pedestrian crossings nearest James Madison Park. The blocks between Brearly Street and Baldwin Street are more narrow than the other blocks of Gorham, so there are currently no bike lanes on these blocks.  Staff are currently reviewing options for how to continue the bike lane on Gorham to Baldwin.

Project Limits

Butler St. to Baldwin St.

Schedule

Tentative schedule: May 10, 2021-June 30, 2021
