In response to increasing traffic on 22nd Avenue on the west side of town, the City of Wakeman's public works department has decided to widen 22nd from 2 lanes, to 3 lanes (2 with 1 center turn lane), in order to improve access to the many retailers.

Here is the intersection of Gilmour Parkway with 22nd Avenue and Kaye Drive, looking south.

Kaye Drive was temporarily closed as the curves on it will need to be realigned and widened as well.

Kaye Drive was re-opened with a temporarily alignment. As 22nd/Kaye is an important north-south connector through Wakeman, city engineers determined that this interim fix was necessary to prevent 11th Avenue from clogging up. This is just north of Gilmour, and north of the bridge over the inlet.

The alignment temporarily narrows down at the south end, where 22nd ends at Wakeman Boulevard (Highway 24). It will be widened to at least 3 lanes as part of the second phase of the project, which will extend 22nd south to Latimer Road. (A 5-lane option has also been proposed in the immediate vicinity of the Wakeman Boulevard intersection).

Wakeman Public Works, in association with the DOT, has also begun work on another project, which you'll be seeing in the next update. This project will widen Wakeman Boulevard/Highway 24 from 2 lanes to 5 lanes between 6th and 22nd.
