Project Summary

North Port Washington Road (Martin Luther King to Olive)

The project will begin on Monday, June 18th and is anticipated to be completed by September 20th. The reconstruction project consists of the removal of the existing pavement and base, which will be replaced by an 8-inch concrete pavement and 6- inch gravel base. North Port Washington Road between North Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and West Capitol Drive will be narrowed from 50-feet to 46-feet matching the roadway from West Capitol Drive to West Olive Street, which is the border of the North City limits. Curb and gutter will be removed and replaced throughout the project corridor. Existing sidewalk in poor condition will be removed and replaced with 5-inch concrete, and driveway approaches will be reconstructed with 7-inch concrete. New inlet structures will also be installed to connect to the storm sewer.

The narrowing of the roadway will allow for more trees and green space. There will be one striped 5-foot bicycle lane in each direction throughout the project limits. 

Construction will occur in two phases. In stage one of the project traffic will be maintained to northbound lanes, but closed to southbound traffic starting June 18th to an anticipated date of August 22nd. In stage two, traffic will be maintained to southbound lanes, but closed to northbound from approximately August 22nd until an anticipated date of September 20th. 

The estimated cost of the project is $2,505,000. The projects are 80% Federal and State funded, and 20% City funded.
