Better Lake Street Project

Posted October 16, 2019
Reconstruct & Restore
The Lake Street Improvement Project includes new concrete and asphalt roadway surfaces and replacing and restoring water and sewer mains nearing the end of their useful service lives. Other features include:

  • Curb repair
  • Enhanced vehicle detection at traffic signals
  • New pavement markings and improvements to sidewalks and street crossings to better accommodate citizens with disabilities.

Renew
New streetscape is planned for the high-traffic business districts along Lake Street between Harlem and Euclid avenues. Features will include:

  • High-quality street furniture
  • Enhanced street and pedestrian lighting
  • Informational wayfinding signs
  • Decorative sidewalk and crosswalk materials

Project goals are to improve traffic circulation and capacity, enhance pedestrian and bicycle linkage between retail districts, replace aging roadway and utilities, promote private investment and economic development, and strengthen Lake Street’s role as the community’s central tourism and retail corridor.
