S. Old Woodward road work info session set
Birmingham city officials are inviting the community to learn and ask questions about the 2022 S. Old Woodward road reconstruction project, between Brown and Landon streets, at a public information session on Tuesday, August 3, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the lower level of Baldwin Public Library.
The 2022 S. Old Woodward road reconstruction project is a continuation of the 2018 Old Woodward reconstruction project, which included both road and infrastructure work from Willits to Brown streets.
Those who attend the public information session will have an opportunity to review project renderings and plans, and discuss the project with city engineers and consultants from MKSK.
The reconstruction project will result in new underground infrastructure and new streetscaping between Brown and Landon. Similar to the 2018 Old Woodward reconstruction project and 2020 Maple Road reconstruction projects, design features are slated to include curb bump-outs at each intersection to improve crosswalks for pedestrians, mid-block crosswalks, raised planter beds, and landscape features. The project also includes enhancements such as exposed aggregate concrete, granite bench seating areas, new street lights, and cell phone charging stations; and improved on-street accessible parking spaces, each served with an individual sidewalk ramp to improve conditions for those needing accommodations.
