A community-based effort was undertaken to accomplish the following Project objectives:
·Improve transportation options for all travelers, including vehicles, bikes, pedestrians and transit;
·Enhance the safety performance of the state highway for all travelers;
·Assess the feasibility for new office, commercial and residential uses; and
·Identify opportunities to design and install improvements that provide safe street crossing sites.
