Transit, Streets, and Sidewalks

Latimer Road & Drexel Drive Sidewalk Project

We are installing a new sidewalk!

We are installing a five-foot-wide sidewalk along the south side of the street from Compton Road to East Rowan Street, creating better pedestrian access in the neighborhood. 

The Latimer Road and Drexel Drive Sidewalk Project is the product of a successful sidewalk petition the City received in the winter of 2019.

Design

The project schedule has changed. We are looking at the project starting construction in late summer 2022.

We plan to install a five-foot-wide sidewalk with a three-and-a-half-foot setback from the curb along the south side of the street from Compton Road to East Rowan Street.  

Adjustments to the sidewalk width and setback may be included in the final design to avoid significant impacts in certain areas as needed and determined by our Engineering staff.

We had a virtual public meeting on Oct 11.

The project manager gave a brief presentation and then answered residents questions. 

Not able to attend the meeting? That's okay!

We recorded the meeting and the meeting maps are below for your review.

Right of Way Acquisition

We are in the Right of Way Acquisition phase of the project. If there are any impacts to your property a member of the real estate team will be contacting you. You may also see survey crews and stakes along the corridor. The City requests that all stakes stay in place until the property owners have met with the City's Real Estate Analyst.

The design process is still moving forward, and our team is working towards the final designs. You may see our team along the corridor as we finalize the construction plans. We are scheduled to complete design plans early this summer and advertise for construction contracts in late July. 

Next Steps

 
  • Advertise for construction contracts
  • Hold pre-construction meeting
  • Start construction
