13th Avenue Paving

Project Description
West 13th Avenue from Garfield Street to Washington Street will be repaved in 2014.  Repaving includes replacing the top layers of deteriorated pavement and removing sections of pavement that have completely failed.  The project will also reconstruct sidewalk access ramps to meet accessibility standards and upgrade pedestrian signals at Chambers Street and Polk Street with audible pedestrian signals.

Lane Reconfiguration and Parking Removal
Pavement projects provide an opportunity to reevaluate the existing configuration of the roadway such as changes in striping to include the addition of bike lanes or crosswalks. The Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan identifies bike lanes for this segment of 13th Avenue.  Installation of bike lanes would require removal of on-street parking on one side of the street.
 
Administrative Order to Remove Parking
The Administrative Order (58-14-02) to remove parking on the south side of W 13th Avenue from Chambers Street to Van Buren Street was signed on January 21, 2014. Appellants were given until February 28, 2014 to file an appeal.  No appeals were filed.
