50th Ave and Wilke Rd

This project will address the risk of vehicles running off the road at the curve by applying a combination of solutions to slow cars down and draw driver attention to the sharp curve. It will also improve pedestrian safety by adding a crosswalk with a pedestrian-activated flashing beacon to serve people walking between the existing pathway and the school. The project will add multiple elements to the roadway, including signage, a speed hump, and striping. To make it easier for drivers to see the roadway, tree trimming or removal may be required.
