The existing intersection at Linda Avenue, Wickford Road, Fenway Drive requires realignment and pavement resurfacing. The work involves modifying the curb line to better align the intersection of Linda Avenue and Wickford Road. The result will be improved safety and operation of the intersection by slowing traffic (particularly traffic turning from Wickford Road), moving the stop line and crosswalk closer to the intersection, and improved sight lines for traffic entering Wickford Road. Additionally, pedestrians will benefit from a shorter crossing of Linda Avenue, as well as ADA compliant sidewalk and crosswalk improvements. The DPW will landscape and maintain the previously paved areas.
Affected roadways will include Linda Avenue, Wickford Road, Fenway Drive and the surrounding neighborhood. A traffic management plan (TMP) for the work area will be implemented to ensure the safety of residents, traffic and workers.
The City is working through feedback collected from attendees of the September 17 neighborhood meeting and will consider them as modifications to the design are made.
Construction for this project will not take place during the 2018 construction season.
Updates to this project will be posted here when they are available.
The City held a neighborhood meeting to discuss this project with the neighborhood on:
When: Monday, September 17, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.
Where: At the corner of Linda Avenue and Wickford Road.
Comments from neighbors were documented and will be considered in the design modifications.
