What's New?

Construction of the approved King Street Complete Street Project is complete. An evaluation of the corridor will be conducted in Spring 2017 and provided to the City's Traffic & Parking Board. The evaluation report will include a comparison of traffic volume, speeds and queues with pre-construction data and the results of the project's traffic study.

Project Background

The portion of King Street between Janneys Lane and Radford Street was resurfaced in August 2016.  As part of that project, the street was evaluated for multimodal improvements.  The City  hosted three public meetings to solicit feedback from the community about this corridor.  The City asked for input on this roadway to get a better understanding of what types of improvements the community would like to see. During and since the first public meeting in November 2015, the community provided the following feedback that staff attempted to address with the new street design options:

  • Difficult to cross King Street
  • Pedestrian safety concerns near school
  • Vehicle speeds along King Street are high
  • Street crossings are long
  • Not enough time to cross at lights
  • Unsafe for people who bike
  • Difficult to access bus stops
  • Improvements needed at intersections
  • Maintain travel time for drivers
  • Need to change character of the roadway


Project Goals

  • Improve the safety and convenience for all street users
  • Provide facilities for people who walk, bike, ride transit or drive cars
  • Implement City Council adopted plans and policies
