The City of Riverdale is proposing to widen Wilson Road from its intersection with Church Street approximately 1000 linear feet to a speed bump just east of the City’s Public Works Building. The existing road through this stretch has 10’ lanes, no curb and gutter and no sidewalk. From the speed bump to the City’s Public Works Building is an additional 500 lf whereby there are 14’ wide lanes, C&G and a sidewalk on the south side of the street. It is the intent of the City to widen the 10’ lanes to 14’ lanes and install curb & gutter and sidewalk on the southerly side of Wilson Road to connect to the existing sidewalk next to the City’s football field. The project is complicated by numerous utility and tree relocations. In addition, permanent R/W acquisition will be required from the First Baptist Church located at the SE corner of Wilson Road and Church Street. Construction of this project will facilitate safe travel for pedestrian access to Wilson Road Park. Additional project details can be found in the Wilson Road Sidewalk and Roadway Improvements RFP.
