Plans to Make Minor Changes to Howell Ave.

As many know, work on S. Howell Ave. from E. Layton Ave. to E. Howard Ave. begins next year. There was a meeting on 11/5 to discuss this work, but if you were unable to be there, you’re able to view the plans here. The construction of S. Howell Ave. will take place in two stages. Stage 1 will be work on the east half of the roadway with the west side open for two-way traffic with one lane in each direction. Stage 2 will be work on the west half of the roadway, with the east side open for two-way traffic with one lane in each direction.

The proposed improvements include:

  • Removing and replacing existing roadway with concrete pavement
  • Replacing all gutters, driveways, and curbs
  • Replacing the existing sidewalk where needed
  • Widening the roadway to accommodate a 5ft bike lane
