East Washington Street is on the City’s 2017 paving schedule, and new pavement markings will be put down after repaving operations are completed. Bicycle facilities will be provided, and on-street parking will be limited to certain areas.
Starting Sunday, May 21, crews will repave East Washington Street, from Vine to North Main streets. Once the paving is complete the following new pavement markings will be installed.
- On-street parking will be prohibited on the eastbound side of East Washington Street, from Vine to North Main streets.
- On-street parking will be prohibited on the westbound side of East Washington Street, from Northfield Court to North Main Street.
- Bike lanes and sharrows will be painted on East Washington Street, from Vine to North Main streets. Sharrow markings are intended to remind bicyclists and motorists that the lane is meant to be utilized and shared by both vehicular and bicycle traffic.
It is anticipated that there will be partial lane closures while the work is taking place and this project is expected to be complete by the end of May.
This project was identified as an infrastructure improvement in the most recent Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan that was adopted in April.
