This project will transform Park Avenue from N. Virginia Avenue to N. Washington Street into a “Great Street,” which are lively, attractive roadways that accommodate all modes of transportation while promoting social interaction, civic activity, and/or commerce.
There are many components to this project, including:
Raised intersections with bulb outs to shorten crosswalks
Realigning the Maple Avenue intersection
Gateway features at each end of the project
Improved entrance to Cherry Hill Park
Improving the intersections of Little Falls Street and Maple Avenue, with Park Avenue and with the north side intersections with Broad Street.
The project is funded by VDOT SmartScale funds ($2.8M), NVTA 70% funds ($8.3M), and NVTA 30% funds ($410K). The current project budget available for the PE phase which will cover Survey, Environmental, and Design-related services is $1,565,080. The entire project budget is $11,510,000, which covers all PE, ROW, Construction, CEI, and CFC staff time.
