Federal Blvd Reconstruction

Federal Boulevard reconstruction, between Alameda and 5th Avenue, is scheduled to be complete in January of 2013. The corridor is wider including adequate sidewalks for pedestrian travel and concrete that replaced asphalt, making it more durable. The utilities have gone underground and traffic lights have been replaced at 1stand 2nd Avenue. Medians are also in place and will be planted in the spring, giving a new aesthetic appeal to Federal Boulevard.
