  • Construct concrete curb, gutter, bike lanes and sidewalk from Peterson Lane to Copper Basin Road.
  • Construct Americans with Disabilities Act-approved sidewalk ramps at intersections.
  • Construct drainage improvements to accommodate the new curb, gutter and sidewalk.
  • Construct retaining walls as needed to accommodate the new roadway and sidewalk.
  • Construct driveways at residential and commercial locations along the roadway.
  • Repave SR 89 throughout the project limits.
  • Remove and install new guardrails, safety barriers or both.
  • Remove and replace traffic signs.

Construction is expected to take approximately four months.
