About the Project
At S. Park Plaza Drive between Garden Village Elementary School and Benjamin Franklin Intermediate School, a raised midblock crosswalk will be constructed to provide an improved crossing for pedestrians and serve as a traffic calming feature to slow the traffic. At the intersections of 87th Street and S. Park Plaza Drive and 87th Street and Washington Street, curb extensions and standard accessible curb ramps will be installed to increase visibility and shorten crossing distances. Along 87th Street and S. Park Plaza Drive, road surfacing treatments coupled with edge lines and improved traffic striping will be installed for traffic calming and pedestrian improvements.
