International Boulevard Corridor Safety Improvements Plan
The purpose of this project is to provide recommendations on enhanced safety improvements for all along the International Boulevard Corridor (from South 152nd Street to South 216th Street). The plan will allow for the City to move forward with identifying the safety concerns, prioritizing the order of addressing the concerns, assigning treatment measures to address the concern, and listing construction initiatives. Part of Citywide Local Road Safety Plan Toole Design was selected as the consultant to help with this plan. The contract scope and fee are being negotiated prior to Council review and action.
