    Please find a graphic for concepts outside of the TIF district. We are calling these Phase 2 Improvements. Typical street funding sources would have to be used to construct these improvements. The funding has not been identified and these are not in the 5-year Capital Improvement Plan.

    Thanks, Chad Millner, City Engineer

    The concept on Grange Road will modify existing traffic lanes and adding a wide shared use trail on the west side. The benefits of this concept are;

    1. Reduced Vehicle Speeds - traffic calming by narrowing lanes.
    2. Improved pedestrian facility - wide shared use trail.
    3. Fills a gap in the pedestrian network between Eden Avenue and 50th Street.

    Thanks, Chad Millner, City Engineer

    The concept on 50th Street is a 3/4 access intersection at Dale Dr and the City Hall entrance with protected left turns, right in - right outs, and expanded off street pedestrian and bike facilities. It also improves the traffic signal at 50th Street and Grange Road. The benefits of this concept are;

    1. Reduced vehicle and pedestrian conflict points from 32 to 10.
    2. Safe queuing for left hand turns within dedicated medians.
    3. Reduced Vehicle Speeds - medians provide traffic calming by narrowing lanes.
    4. Reduced severity and frequency of most crash types.
    5. Improved pedestrian facility - wide shared use trails on both sides.

    Thanks, Chad Millner, City Engineer

    The improvement concept at the intersection of Eden Ave, Grange Rd, and Wilson Rd is 2 roundabouts. Because of the offset nature of the intersection and the proximity to driveways, 1 roundabout does not work at this location. The benefits of this concept are;

    1. Reduced Vehicle Speeds
    2. Reduced vehicle and pedestrian conflict points.
    3. Reduced severity and frequency of most crash types.
    4. Improved pedestrian facility - wide shared use trails on both sides, shorter crossing distances, median refuge island, crossing only one direction at a time.
    5. Typically, less delay than traffic signals or all-way-stop intersections.

    Thanks, Chad Millner, City Engineer
