The proposed project in general would widen, realign and re-stripe 24th Street from west of State Route 99 to east of M Street, as well as realign and re-stripe 23rd Street from west of C Street to east of M Street, in order to add two travel lanes (one in each direction) to the roadway. The project would also encompass improvements to the 24th Street/State Route 99 Interchange as well as the widening of the Oak Street/24th Street intersection.
The City is moving forward with all work required for the 24th Street Improvement Project. 95% design plans have been submitted. Acquisition and demolition activities are underway.
An auction was held on Thursday, April 27 for the 2400+ square foot house located at 2312 24th Street and a new east/west facing lot at 2405 Bay Street. The lot is excess land from two north/south oriented parcels acquired for the widening of 24th Street. The new owner will construct a foundation and move the 96-year old home, turning it to face Bay Street.
24th Street Historic Districts
The Area of Potential Effects for the 24th Street Improvement Project was established in October 2010 using the engineering footprints of all Build Alternatives. Two potential historic districts were identified within this area – the District North of 24th Street and the District South of 24th Street. These historic districts are assumed to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places for the purposes of this project only. Visit the 24th Street Historic Districts website to see homes identified as significant to these districts.
