The new pedestrian facility includes 400 linear feet of concrete sidewalk to address substandard horizontal and vertical curves and pedestrian facilities near Douglass Drive and the Dead Run Trail. The five foot sidewalk is separated by a four foot wide grass buffer strip. Other infrastructure improvements were required to provide an accessible path, including curb and gutter, curb ramps, driveway entrances and pavement modifications. A closed drainage system was installed to meet drainage requirements and support the installation of the pedestrian facility. To enhance vehicle and pedestrian safety, modifications to signage and pavement markings were made. Dense trees and overhanging limbs were cleared to improve sight distances.
