DGL conducted a safety study for a high-crash segment of Navarre (SR 2), prepared the funding application and presented the project to both stakeholders and ODOT. The proposed improvements included median islands, U-turn lanes, upgraded signals, resurfacing and a service road to serve commercial land uses on the northeast quadrant of Navarre/Wheeling. The $2.4 million funding request was granted in June 2013, construction completed in 2017. The City is also investing nearly a million dollars in betterments for the corridor. The betterments include stamped colored crosswalks, stamped and colored medians, lighted bollards, landscaping, irrigation, decorative signal poles, decorative sign posts and decorative lighting. The selections made for the project are serving as the starting point for other corridor upgrades.
