Project Description

Improvements to Cregg Lane, including traffic calming, curb/gutter/sidewalk installation, improved access to McCormick Park, improved bike/ped accessibility, irrigation ditch safety improvements.

Project Benefits

Cregg Lane was originally designed as a residential road to serve the McCormick Park neighborhood.  In 2013, the City connected Cregg Lane to Wyoming St. to improve access and traffic flow between Orange and Russell streets, which increased traffic on Cregg.  The improvements will make Cregg Lane and the McCormick Park entrance safer and more accessible for all modes of transportation.
