The FY2021 CIP calls for improvements to pedestrian crossing and the roadway in this busy intersection. The project would involve a slight realignment of Bradford Street, relocating crosswalks, and providing a continuous sidewalk on the north side. The project would extend as far west as High Pole Hill and make improvements to the Alden Street / High Pole Hill / Bradford Street intersection. The intersection is the exit point of 3 major parking lots within town and the gateway to downtown. There is a high volume of pedestrians that need to safely navigate around vehicles and bicycles.
The construction cost is estimated to be $445,000 with an additional $55,000 for engineering design, bidding, and construction costs.
