About the Projects

Planned improvements to the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue East and Valley Avenue East (CRP 5890) are intended to improve safety and relieve traffic congestion. The improvements would include the following:

  • Reconstructing the existing traffic signal system and intersection street lighting.
  • Constructing left-turn lanes on all four legs of the intersection plus an eastbound right-turn lane on the west leg.
  • Constructing cement concrete curb, gutter, and sidewalk throughout the project limits.
  • Reconstructing the storm drainage system.

CRP 5925 will determine right-of-way needs to provide additional long range turn-lane storage capacity beyond what is needed for CRP 5890.
