Ottawa Street Reconstruction Project Begins

Ottawa Street

This project was formulated during the City's CIP process when the public strongly supported pedestrian and bicycle access to Riverfest Park from Ottawa Street.

The current two-lane stretch of road from 82nd Street to the entrance of Riverfest Park is approximately 24 feet in total width with no shoulder or sidewalk; this reconstruction project will make the trip out to Riverfest Park more easily accessible by widening the road to 32 feet (two 11-foot travel lanes and two 5-foot bike lanes). Additionally, there will be an 8-foot-wide concrete sidewalk along the east side with grading for a future 5-foot sidewalk along the west side. 

The bridge will be closed until early summer, so access to the entrance of Riverfest Park, Water Treatment Facility, brush site, and animal shelter will be limited to an Edgerton Road to 79th Street detour.
