Long awaited improvements to Fishinger Road begin in 2022 that promise to enhance the connectivity and aesthetics of this major thoroughfare. Concurrent with these two phases of work, a new waterline will be installed along this entire section of Fishinger Road.
Phase I runs from Mountview Road to Tremont Road, with full street reconstruction, new curb and gutter, improved LED streetlights, new sidewalks and a shared-use path. The City has secured grant funding of up to $4.2 million to support this $6.9 million project.
Phase II – scheduled for 2023 – will complete the project, running from Mountview to Riverside Drive, with additional grant funding totaling 80 percent of the projected $3.9 million construction cost. This phase will:
- Replace pavement and curb and gutters
- Add sidewalks and a shared-use path to improve community mobility and connectivity
- Replace the existing waterline (all services, side street connections, fire hydrants, etc.)
- Replace street lighting with upgraded LED lights
- Replace the traffic poles and signal at Kioka Avenue
Phase I construction is underway, detailed design for Phase II will be in process in 2022. In preparation, the City’s Engineering Division is hosting an Open House, from 6:30-8 pm, on Thursday, November 18 so that residents can meet with Staff and the project design team to learn about the proposed improvements, including placement of the new sidewalks and shared-use path. The Open House includes a brief presentation at the beginning of the meeting.
