Residents will soon see new bike lanes along Freeport Boulevard from 4th Avenue to Sutterville Road. Construction began last month and will continue into August.
Once completed, the project will enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety, and improve connectivity within the area. As part of the bike lane installation, the existing two lanes of traffic in each direction will be changed to one lane in each direction— separated by a two-way left turn lane.
What can residents expect?
Work in front of McClatchy High School and the area around 5th and Freeport is underway and nearing completion. To minimize impact, temporary striping can be seen along the entire length of the project. Signage is in place along the project site.
The City will also be reconstructing sidewalks, curbs, and gutters. The construction will impact access to residents’ driveways at a maximum of three days. The City will be notifying all residents in advance of construction.
