The City of Glendale is continuing efforts to reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities with the commencement of the Safe Routes to School Project. To keep residents apprised of the safety changes being made to certain areas, the City of Glendale is hosting a community meeting TODAY, March 22nd from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the City of Glendale’s Municipal Services Building located at 633 East Broadway, Room 106. This particular community meeting will discuss the Roosevelt Middle School, Glendale Christian School, Mann Elementary School, Glendale Community College’s Garfield Campus, and Muir Elementary School road improvements.
The project is part of the City’s efforts to reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities through safety improvements while also encouraging students to walk or bike to school. The work will take on multiple aspects which include:
The installation of traffic calming measures like curb returns and median islands at intersections
Installation of new or modified ramps to meet current ADA requirements
Reconstruction or resurfacing of existing pavement within project limits
Application of Slurry Seal and crack filling on Chevy Chase Drive
Installation of traffic circles, traffic striping, and pavement markings.
Inclusion of more bike lanes and shared road markings
The construction will be in the vicinity of multiple schools, although today’s meeting will only address expected impacts at the ones listed above. Construction is anticipated to begin Summer 2018.
This community meeting is an important way to receive updates on the project, hear the reasoning behind the project, and ask project-related questions to City staff.
