Edgewater Transportation, Safety and Access Improvements Project
2nd Street Reconstruction: Enhanced Vehicle and Pedestrian Circulation
In reconstructing 2nd Street, the unpaved 44,000 square foot gravel median separating City-maintained travel lanes along 2nd Street NW from Rosemont and Gerth Streets is now a pedestrian friendly environment with parking facilities to support mixed use development on 2nd Street from Rosemont to Gerth. The long term vision for 2nd Street is for more housing and commercial uses to support the mix of commercial uses on Edgewater. The design includes sidewalks, street trees, customer parking, improved lighting and utility upgrades. This project was completed December 2013.
Rosemont/Edgewater Intersection Replacement: Increasing Traffic Capacity and Safety
In conjunction with the 2nd Street project, the Rosemont/Edgewater intersection was improved to include a new signal and improved vehicular circulation and safety for all modes through the intersection by widening the intersection and allowing for left turn lanes from Edgewater to Rosemont and Rosemont to Edgewater. Funding for this project, also completed in December 2013, came from Transportation System Development Charges.
