The city has awarded the $4-million Todd Road pedestrian improvement project to BA Dawson Blacktop Ltd., with phase one of construction starting this week.
The city received four proposals for the project, which will see improvements — highly anticipated by area residents — to Todd Road between Klahanie Drive and Ronde Lane.
Work includes a raised sidewalk, concrete curbing, a crosswalk on Todd Road near Ronde Lane, improved bust stops, road repaving, additional lighting and retaining walls.
Construction during the first phase will limit traffic to single-lane alternating traffic, accessible to local traffic only. Construction is expected to take place Mondays to Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Pedestrian access will be maintained through the construction zone, while bus traffic via route No. 17 will be rerouted between lower Lamar Drive and upper Lamar Drive, beginning May 21.
