Construction begins today at Congress/Oltorf

Monday, February 5, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Construction begins today on the intersection of South Congress Avenue and Oltorf Street. The project is funded by money from the 2016 mobility bond as part of the Intersection Safety/Vision Zero program. It is the third intersection to be enhanced as part of that program. According to the news release, “Improvements include construction of center medians on Congress Avenue near the intersection to reduce unsafe left turns; redesign of access driveways and construction of a shared-use path to reduce conflicts between people walking or biking and people driving; installation of new high-visibility crosswalks; and more.” The goal for completion is summer 2018.
