Central Avenue Complete Streets Improvements
The proposed Central Avenue project from Broadway Street to Cleveland Avenue includes roadway reconstruction of two lanes, curb and gutter, and improved storm drainage; reconstructed pedestrian accommodations with ADA-accessible sidewalk on both sides of the road; safety improvements at the Broadway and Central Avenue intersection via installation of a roundabout; continuous street lighting; and associated utility relocations.
The City anticipates these improvements will enhance multimodal safety, improve traffic operations, address geometric challenges, and improve congestion. The revitalized corridor will also support economic vitality and the roundabout will serve as a gateway feature to downtown Monett. Tentative schedules and locations for right-of-way acquisition and construction will be discussed at the meeting. Tentative construction is planned to begin in Summer 2024.
