FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Public Works will host an informational open house for the Cherry Street Widening project 5 – 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 at King's Chapel Assembly of God (2434 E. Cherry St). Residents are invited to learn about the initial plans for the project and provide input as the project progresses. There will be no formal presentation.
This project will involve widening Cherry Street to three lanes from Barnes Avenue to Oak Grove Avenue. Improvements will include bike lanes, sidewalks and stormwater infrastructure. Intersection improvements at Cherry Street and Oak Grove Avenue will also be included, with signal upgrades and ADA improvements.
The Cherry Street Widening Project will be funded through the voter-approved 1/8-cent Transportation Sales Tax. The project is still in the preliminary design phase. Construction is expected to begin in 2019.
