Reconstruct and pave Woodlawn from the existing two lane section to a three lane section with curb and gutter from 37th to 45th Streets. The project will include a 10' hike and bike path that connects with the hike and bike path proposed for 37th Street from Oliver to Woodlawn that is estimated to finish construction in September. The intersection of 45th and Woodlawn will also be reconstructed as a part of this project.
