Johnson Avenue (47th to Burlington) and Lawn Avenue (Burlington to Elm) will be reconstructed in concrete in 2018. Post Office Drive (Lawn to Heartland Bank Parking Lot) will be resurfaced in asphalt.
This project will include the following components:
Specific information on how a concrete reconstruction will effect the area can be found on the Roadway Construction main page . The presentation and informational handout from the public meeting will be posted here once it is available.
The reconstruction of Lawn Avenue allows the Village the opportunity to begin pedestrian streetscape improvements in the central business district. The Village developed the 2011 Downtown Redevelopment Plan and the 2016 Downtown Revitalization Refinement Project as guides to choosing the aesthetic of the future downtown. The project is first and foremost a maintenance driven project. However, new curblines, parking structures, pedestrian walkways, and landscaping elements will be included. Foundations for future benches, raised planters, irrigation and a kiosk will be installed as well during this project. Below is a presentation on the changes coming to Lawn Avenue in 2018 and a link to the final project design:
