The purpose of this project was to modify the intersection of East Street, Central Avenue, and
10th Street to accommodate the conversion of Central Avenue from one-way to two-way traffic.
Work included the modification of the island to make room for two-way traffic, including bus and
emergency vehicles, through the intersection. Existing signals were modified, and new signals
installed for the two-way traffic flow. This included pedestrian push buttons and pedestrian signal
heads. In addition, the existing pavement was milled and resurfaced to repair potholes and minor
cross-slope variations due to wear and tear over time.
Pedestrian safety was considered, and new crosswalks and ADA compliant curb ramps were added.
Sidewalk bump-outs were added to help with pedestrian safety and the new two-way traffic patterns.
Where necessary, sidewalks were reconstructed to meet ADA compliant cross-slopes of 2% or less.
Dedicated parking was also included as a part of the reconfiguration of the intersection along 10th
Street. Minor drainage modifications were made to inlets due to the addition of the bump-outs with
no changes in the overall flow patterns. New pavement markings for the two-way conversion were
added with the addition of new signage to reflect the change in traffic operations.
