    • Conversion of the roundabout at Eisenhower Avenue and Holland Lane to a "T" intersection. 
    • Full width resurfacing of Eisenhower Avenue between Holland Lane and Mill Road. 

 

Sidewalk and Bicycle Facility Improvements

Enhancements vary by location.  All sidewalks will receive new curb ramps for improved accessibility by Persons with Disabilities. Additional enhancements may include street lighting, high visibility crosswalks, countdown pedestrian signals, and additional signage.  

  • Eastbound Eisenhower Avenue:
    • Mill Road to Elizabeth Lane
    • Elizabeth Lane and Hooffs Run Drive (new curb ramps only)

  • Westbound Eisenhower Avenue sidewalks:
    • Elizabeth Lane to Mill Road
    • Holland Lane to John Carlyle Drive

A new eastbound bike lane will also be added between Hooffs Run Drive and Holland Lane. (As future private redevelopment occurs adjacent to Eisenhower Avenue, new improved and widened sidewalks will be required, as well as dedicated bicycle facilities.)
