The Stadium Way Arterial Project will open Stadium Way to vehicle and bicycle traffic on Wednesday morning.

Drivers may experience some delays as final tasks such as landscaping, handrail installation, and final cleanup are completed in September and October. Plus, pedestrians will have to wait a little longer for the new handrails to be installed to enjoy the upgraded ADA-accessible sidewalks, benches, garbage cans and other pedestrian street amenities. Yet, City staff are happy with the opening date.
