Jefferson River Road Sidewalks

The purpose of this project is to install sidewalks along Jefferson River Road between Jefferson Road and Vincent Drive. The proposed sidewalk will close an existing gap, providing safe pedestrian access to adjacent subdivisions and businesses along Jefferson River Road as well as to public transportation and points of interest along Jefferson Road and Prince Avenue. 

Three alternative designs have been developed by engineering consultants.  Input from a recent public meeting will inform staff’s recommendation to the Mayor and Commission on which design will be chosen for development. The Mayor and Commission will have access to all of comments before they make a final decision.

Input collected at the meeting and online is being reviewed by staff and presented to the Mayor and Commission. A timeframe for this project has not yet been determined.
