Victoria Street from Summit Avenue to Concordia Avenue will be resurfaced in 2023 through a process called mill and overlay to create a smoother roadway surface. Crews grind off the top layer of roadway, then replace it with a new layer of bituminous pavement. The project will include some pedestrian improvements.

    New Sidewalks: No Salt

    Please refrain from using salt to remove ice on new concrete installed this year.  Salt will harm newly installed concrete and increase freeze/thaw cycles which can do further damage.

    We appreciate your assistance in helping maintain the new sidewalks.

    Pedestrian Improvements

    The city’s sidewalk division will make pedestrian improvements:

    • Install ADA-compliant ramps to improve accessibility for people using strollers and mobility devices.
    • Install bumpouts (curb extensions) and medians to narrow the road and provide a shorter crossing and better visibility for people. Narrowing the road also encourages slower driving speeds.
      • Bumpouts will be constructed at Marshall Avenue, Hauge Avenue, Laurel Avenue, and Portland Avenue.
    • Example of a median that improves pedestrian crossing and does not change vehicle access. This is similar to the medians that will be installed on Victoria Street.
      • Medians will be constructed at Carroll Avenue, Iglehart Avenue, and Dayton Avenue.
