Mobility Corridor University Boulevard & Merrill Road Corridor

Description

The corridors program is intended to strike a balance between all the functions of a street putting people and quality of place first with the fundamental recognition that street can play a major role in improving public health and community livability. In order to achieve these outcomes, potential corridor improvements considers how pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit users serve as partners in mobility, each contributing to a community’s quality of life.

The Complete Streets project selected for this area include removing the existing signal at the University Boulevard and Merrill Road intersection and add a roundabout, pedestrian crossings, sidewalks and multi-use path. 

Status

Design is complete and construction is projected to start in January 2020.

Benefits

These projects will provide a safe, comfortable and convenient environment for walkers and cyclists, many of whom are trying to directly access JTA’s system. In addition, these improvements will support “placemaking” opportunities in areas to support community redevelopment and revitalization.
