Exchange St and Cedar St between S Portage Path and S Broadway St
Starts: September 2016

This project is a signalization and road diet project on the east – west arterials Exchange St and Cedar St. All signals within the corridor between S Portage Path and S Broadway St will be upgraded and coordinated. Through lanes will be reduced to two lanes on each street. The remaining pavement will be used for parking lanes and bicycle lanes. Bump outs will be constructed to further define parking lanes and shorten pedestrian crossings.
