248th Avenue Improvement

Public Information Meeting Scheduled

The public is invited to an open house-style informational meeting about potential improvements to 248th Avenue. The meeting will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7, in Meeting Room A/B of the 95th Street Library, 3015 Cedar Glade Road. The purpose of this meeting is to present existing conditions in the area and gather input on needs. No proposed concepts will be shared.

The City has identified the need to improve the portion of 248th Avenue that runs from 95th Street to 103rd Street. The goal of this project is to create a better driving experience for motorists, as well as better recreational experiences for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The project scope may include improving the roadway; installing new pavement, curbs and gutters; and installing a new street lighting system. Gaps in the current bike path on the west side of 248th Avenue would be connected. Additionally, the City will investigate the possibility of pouring a new sidewalk on the east side of the roadway, from 95th Street to 103rd Street. 

Timeline

Construction is expected to begin in May 2022 and last for approximately 12 months.
