Public views street project options

Proposal would reconfigure West Broadway traffic, offer 'bump-outs' and amenities in downtown Plainview

Several people attended an informational open house on Aug. 29 at Plainview City Hall, in regard to a proposed downtown street and sidewalk improvement project.
Engineers from Bolton and Menk, Inc., Rochester, displayed three options for the work on West Broadway/Highway 247, between Fifth Street and Highway 42.
Project options include reducing West Broadway from the current four lanes down to two travel lanes and a center shared left turn lane; and including 'bump-outs' to slow traffic speed and provide motorists a clearer sight line to see pedestrians at intersection crosswalks, project engineer Derek Olinger said.
The three options would cost $2.4 million, $1.5 million and $2.1 million, respectively. Bicycle lanes, benches, parking lanes, sidewalk width
