Improved Traffic Flow on the Horizon for Kenwood Ave and Arrowhead Rd.

Upgrades will improve efficient and safe operations for vehicles and pedestrians

Traffic signal upgrades will begin at the intersection of Kenwood Avenue and Arrowhead Road starting Monday August 8, as part of the ongoing traffic improvement plan for the intersection.

The traffic signal work includes the replacement of the existing signal systems at the Kenwood/Arrowhead intersection, including installation of a dedicated left turn lanes and arrows, along with pedestrian improvements.

A new signal will also be installed at the intersection of Cleveland Street and Kenwood Avenue.

Pavement work will include a mill and overlay on the county’s portion of Kenwood Avenue/Howard Gnesen Road from Arrowhead Road. Concrete repair and replacement will also be performed at the Kenwood/Arrowhead Intersection.

The project will be phased as follows:

  • East and West Cleveland Street reconstruction
  • Kenwood/Cleveland Street intersection work
  • Arrowhead/Kenwood intersection
  • improved bank entrances
  • Milling and paving of Arrowhead Road and Kenwood Ave

In conjunction with the Kenwood Village Development, Cleveland Street will be reconstructed and a new water-main installed from Kenwood west to approximately 34 West Cleveland Street. Impacted residents will be notified of any water shut offs in advance.

A utility connection will require Cleveland Street and Kenwood to be closed off to traffic.

Project is set to begin August 8 and is anticipated to be complete by mid-October.

Kenwood to Arrowhead – College Street, Junction Ave, W St. Marie St., Carver Ave.

Kenwood/Howard Gnesen to Arrowhead – Macfarlane Rd, N. Blackman Ave.
