WEB_MLK Highlight_July 16 2020

The stretch of roadway on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from Orange Avenue to International Speedway Boulevard has reopened after receiving its final paving. New decorative sidewalks and streetlight poles have been installed, and all underground utilities have been replaced, which was some of the oldest infrastructure in the city. In the coming weeks, crews will complete the decorative sidewalks after the wooden poles are removed, and the roadway will have its final striping. For more information about the MLK Road Project, visit www.codb.us/MLKRoadProject.

Project highlights include:

  • 23 on-street parking spaces available
  • New asphalt roadway has a 20-year design life
  • Lifespan for new underground utilities is 50 years
  • New LED streetlights are brighter, energy efficient
  • ADA compliant sidewalks are 8-feet wide
  • Curb ramps and crosswalks are ADA compliant
  • Reclaimed water services extended to all properties
  • Water services and city sewer laterals were replaced
  • All vacant parcels now have utility services, which makes them more attractive for economic development
