Project Description:

This project aims to implement crash mitigating improvements at the intersection of Main St, Humboldt Pkwy, and Kensington Ave. Notable proposed improvements include:

  • The installation of new traffic signals at two intersections on Kensington Ave at Humboldt Pkwy, which are currently stop-sign controlled.
  • Improved signal timing, detection and coordination at new and existing signals.
  • Modifications to existing vehicular lane configurations.
  • Improved pedestrian access through the intersection, including enhanced crosswalks, pedestrian signals with audible push-buttons and countdown timers, and wheelchair-accessible curb ramps.
