Windsor Road Update

From the City of Urbana:

The vehicle lanes on Windsor Road will be moved off of the old concrete pavement to the newly constructed concrete pavement west of Philo Road starting Saturday, December 13, 2014 in preparation for the winter shutdown period. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times on Windsor Road through the winter shutdown period. The winter shutdown period will commence Saturday, December 13, 2014 and will continue until construction resumes in the spring of 2015. The project is currently forty percent complete, and the remaining sixty percent of the project is expected to be complete by December 2015.

The Windsor Road Pavement Reconstruction Project is being constructed by Stark Excavating, Inc. from Bloomington, Illinois. The project award amount is $4,064,796.04. This project is being funded by a combination of Federal Highway Administration’s Surface Transportation Program (federal highway trust funds) and City Municipal Bond Funds (reimbursed with local gas tax funds).

The proposed improvements consist of replacing the existing concrete pavement with a new concrete pavement from Race Street to Philo Road. The existing four lanes of Windsor Road will remain, but the lane widths will be reduced to eleven feet. An eight foot raised, landscaped median will be installed throughout the length of the project, excluding the intersections, to provide increased access control to adjacent properties. The intersections with Windsor Road at Race Street and Philo Road are also included in this work. A new traffic signal with Accessible Pedestrian Signals will be installed at the Windsor Road and Race Street intersection. Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons will be installed at the Windsor Road and Vine Street crosswalk to Meadowbrook Park to enhance pedestrian safety at that intersection.
