What's happening now?
This project is substantially complete. Most of the major construction is completed. Several of the speed bumps particularly on the north segment of Fessenden will need to be repaired. However, in order to assure that the work will last it is necessary to wait until warmer and dryer weather.
The St. Johns Truck Strategy is a package of eight sub-projects that are designed to address long-standing issues with cut-through freight traffic that impacts livability and safety in the St. Johns neighborhood. The main elements of the strategy are focused on either (1) improving the designated freight route around the neighborhood to encourage its use or (2) traffic calming and safety improvement projects to discourage freight traffic from using residential streets as cut-through routes, particularly N St Louis Avenue and Fessenden Street.
Phase II of the St. Johns Truck Strategy implements three of the eight sub-projects identified in the St. Johns Truck Strategy adopted by City Council in 2001. Two of the projects are focused on traffic calming on N St Louis Avenue and Fessenden Street between Columbia Way and Lombard Street. The third is focused on multimodal issues on the N Lombard Street freight route between N St Louis and Bruce avenues.
The two projects on N St Louis Avenue and Fessenden Street will include:
On N Lombard Street between St Louis and Bruce avenues, PBOT will:
