Design

This project will install sidewalks, update curb ramps, and provide signalized pedestrian crossings on New Hope Road between Capital Boulevard and Wallingford Drive. 

Design work started on this project in 2015 but was put on hold in 2016 for lack of funds. The project resumed in the Fall of 2018. 

Next Steps

 

We are scheduled to advertise the project for construction bids in fall 2020.

History

The Capital Sidewalk program selects projects using a prioritization methodology. The procedure includes studying the City’s Pedestrian Plan, pedestrian crashes, street classification, household income, speed limit, age of the population, density, and proximity to parks, schools, government facilities, shopping, bus stops, libraries, hospitals, museums, and sports facilities.  Funding for this project was made possible as a result of the 2013 and 2017 Bond.
