West Davis goes from three lanes to one right before the intersection at Rosemont, where elementary-school students from Winnetka Heights must cross to get to school.
The intersection is to be redesigned thanks to the Better Block, which found $201,512 in the city’s budget to fund the project.
The city is seeking input from neighbors during a meeting from 9-10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 2, in the Alta West Davis conference room.
The Better Block also is planning a public design workshop in April and a “better plaza” event May 17 and 18 to display some of the ideas that arise from public meetings and city planners. They expect the project to be completed in August.
Below is a plan the Better Block came up with for that intersection about a year ago. It would create plaza-like bikeways by closing two Seventh Street blocks to motor traffic.
