• Install a diagonal bicycle crossing across Hilyard St at intersection of E 33rd Ave and Hilyard St.
• Modify the west sidewalk on Hilyard St to create a multi-use path from E 34th Aly to E 36th Pl.

Business Access During Construction? Yes
Traffic Impacts:

• Rexius running path will be closed in sections, pedestrians please use adjacent sidewalks.
• Drivers should expect lane closures and lane shifts during construction.
• Bicyclists should expect to merge with motor vehicle traffic depending on available lane widths during construction.
• With any construction, drivers should expect equipment and workers in the roadway leading to congestion and delays during the work.

Work Schedule:

• This project is scheduled for construction in the spring and summer of 2018.
• Prior to the start of street construction, the City’s arborists may be on-site trimming trees to prevent overhead limbs from being damaged by construction equipment.
• Also prior to construction, utility companies (water, electricity, gas) may be on-site adjusting their facilities in order to avoid conflicts with the work and prevent damage to their facilities.

Funding:

• The major source of funding is the Multimodal Transportation Enhance Program (MTEP) as administered by the Federal Highway Administration and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
• The City share for this project will be funded by the city’s transportation system changes program and the 2012 Pavement Bond Measure - Pedestrian Enhancement Program.
