Mayor Gary Christenson was joined by State Senator Jason Lewis, State Representatives Steve Ultrino and Kate Lipper-Garabedian and City Councillors Ryan O’Malley and Amanda Linehan to celebrate the recent improvements at the Washington/Winter/Glenwood Intersection near Oak Grove Train Station.
The Project was identified as a high priority project in the City. Uber/Lift money and 2020 Earmark funds were utilized in conjunction with other City funds to complete the project which addressed a variety of safety issues for all modes of transportation including bike and pedestrian. The project included installation of granite curb, placement of ADA compliant concrete wheelchair ramps and sidewalks, replacement of traffic signals, installation of new pedestrian signals and push button assembly, milling and paving, and new pavement markings at the intersection of Washington Street/Winter Street/Glenwood Street and Grove Street.
“I could not be more pleased with the result of this improvement,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “I’m grateful to the state delegation who worked with us on this project to achieve a much safer intersection.”
