Preliminary evaluations for 2013 Neighborhood Street Fund applications are complete! Check out Highland Park/Holden intersection here. Next step is ranking by District Council, and then on to the Mayor for approval for those projects chosen to move forward to design in 2014, and construction 2015. Text of SDOT’s review of this project is here:
The proposed NSF project would install a roundabout at this location. New curb, gutter and sidewalk would be installed and the intersection would be repaved to construct the intersection improvements. New roadway lighting would be installed around the perimeter of the roundabout and existing utility poles may need to be relocated to facilitate this installation. Landscaping or grass could be provided in areas in the newly created green spaces. A complete new drainage system is anticipated to fit the new grading and curb location. It is anticipated that the amount of new and replaced roadway pavement would require this project to provide stormwater detention and water quality facilities. Additionally, the project would be required to implement Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) to the maximum extent feasible. GSI features could consist of new tree installations or potentially some small swales depending on the final grading.
