Irving and Scott Streets Traffic Calming Project

Scott and Irving Intersection

Irving Street from Kirkland Street to Scott Street and Scott Street from Irving Street to Bryant Street will be under construction Fall 2012, Spring/Summer 2013. In addition to sidewalk and road way reconstruction, the project includes traffic calming elements to reduce vehicle speeds and enhance safety for pedestrians. These were developed through an extensive community process, which included a meeting organized by the residents of the area, two neighborhood meetings organized by the city and several meetings with individual property owners. The proposed work includes new sidewalks on Irving Street form Kirkland Street to Scott Street, a raised intersection at Scott Street and Irving Street with squared off corners, and the addition of two green spaces for plantings. At Kirkland Street, the roadway entrance has been narrowed and made a consistent width with the rest of Irving Street, and a crosswalk with a curb extension across Kirkland is included to make this crossing more convenient.


Design work completed.  The construction work is part of the Construction Package Chapter 90 Contract 15 that includes 7 more locations around the city.  Bids for construction contract are due on May 17, 2012. Irving Street from Kirkland Street to Scott Street and Scott Street from Irving Street to Bryant Street will be under construction Summer/Fall 2012.
