Project Background 

The City received numerous requests for traffic calming along Stevenson Avenue and pedestrian safety upgrades at Stevenson Avenue and Yoakum Parkway.   The City presented options for improving the roadway to the community in spring 2014.  Based on the feedback received at this meeting, designs were developed to provide a road diet along Stevenson Avenue.  Staff then presented the proposals to the community on August 26th, 2014 at 7:30pm during the Olympus Board Meeting.  Representatives from neighboring buildings were invited and attended as well.  The project was constructed and completed in the summer 2015.
