  • Addition of retaining wall on southeast corner of Centerville Road to improve sight distance for motorists entering the intersection
  • Delineated bicycle lane and pavement markings along Centerville Road
  • Improved curbing and drainage throughout the project area
  • Comprehensive landscaping for erosion control and intersection aesthetics
