Gary Avenue Improvements

Phase II Engineering is underway for the proposed improvements to Gary Avenue from Jewell Road to Harrison Avenue. The project includes a full-depth reconstruction of the roadway. Traffic signal installation, striped crosswalks, and pedestrian countdown signals are proposed at Prairie Avenue along with roadway widening at the intersection approaches to allow for channelized left turn lanes. This intersection will also include the addition of a new approach to the northeast, which will provide access to the planned new parking lot for Cosley Zoo. Additional improvements include the installation of an off-street shared-use path, extension of the Winfield Creek culvert, and installation of storm sewers.
