18th Street Study

Project Overview

The Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WRA) plans to construct a large storm sewer as part of the Ingersoll Run Sewer Project – Phase 2 through the area of 18th Street between Locust Street and Ingersoll Avenue. In planning for this future construction, the City completed a study to determine if streets in the area need to be reconfigured to improve transportation safety and efficiency for all users.

Goal of Study

The goals of the study include:

  • Planning street improvements with the WRA Ingersoll Run Sewer project
  • Improving walkability and cycling infrastructure on the western edge of downtown
  • Clean up atypical intersections
  • Converting 1 block sections of one-way streets to two0way
