Johnston-Oehler Farm-to-Market

Johnston-Oehler Road
Farm-To-Market Project
This project will identify roadway infrastructure needs and deficiencies, recommend improvements that accommodate all modes of transportation, and develop a project design concept that supports existing and proposed land uses.

What's happened? During the planning phase, the project team used the City’s Urban Street Design Guidelines (USDG) to determine the best solution for the Johnston-Oehler corridor.   Three public meetings were held to discuss alternatives for improvement and present the recommended design.  On June 23, 2014, City Council awarded the construction contract to Ferebee Corporation.
