Jefferson Boulevard Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Improvements Project at Hetzler Road Dedication Ceremony
To celebrate the completion of the Jefferson Boulevard Pedestrian and Bicycle Access Improvements Project at Hetzler Road, the dedication ceremony was on Friday, January 18 at 10:00 AM at the street level parking area west of the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook Entrance at Jefferson Boulevard and Hetzler Road.
This project has created a more comfortable way for cyclists and pedestrians to access the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook and the surrounding area. Some of the specific improvements that were completed as part of this project include: a new traffic signal with high visibility crosswalks at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Hetzler Road; curb extensions at the intersection of Jefferson Boulevard and Hetzler Road; sidewalks filling the gaps along Jefferson Boulevard leading to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook; raised landscaped median islands on Jefferson Boulevard near the entrance to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook; bike lanes from approx. Duquesne Avenue to Holdrege Avenue; and improvements to a small parking lot area.
