The W.O. 16-09 Grand Avenue project will widen Grand Avenue between 52nd Street West and 58th Street West to a three lane section. This includes one driving lane in each direction with a center turn lane. A 10' wide multi-use path will be constructed along the south side of Grand Avenue between 52nd Street West and 58th Street West and along the west side of 54th Street West between Grand Avenue and Rimrock Road. Sidewalk with a width of 5' will be constructed along portions of the north side of Grand Avenue and the east side of 54th Street West. A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of 54th Street West and Grand Avenue. A HAWK signal will be installed on Grand Avenue near the front entrance to Ben Steel Middle School.
