High Street Widening Project

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The High Street Widening Project is an expansion project along State Route 94. Its main objectives are safety and access management along the corridor, and to improve the flow of traffic through the area. This will be accomplished by widening the road and bridge over I 76, constructing access roads to reach businesses, constructing a median in the road, adding traffic signals, and constructing a pedestrian and bicycle path. The project is estimated to begin Spring 2016 and end in 2018. This page will be kept updated with information and notices about the project.
