The Barracks Road and Emmet Street improvements project is a &8.6 million Smart Scale-funded project that will build infrastructure improvements, bicycle and pedestrian improvements and improvements to existing transit facilities as well as general intersection upgrades.

The project will incorporate improvements to all phases and functionality of the intersection. Right turn lanes will be added to the northbound Emmet Street (Rt29) corridor) and westbound Barracks Road. This will entail relocation of one traffic signal pole and acquisition of right of way.

Along with car-centric improvements, bicycle / pedestrian and transit improvements are proposed. These would include the installation of pedestrian refuge islands across both streets, construction of a multiuse sidewalk along Emmet Street and connecting to a planned, future trail network that extends down Meadowbrook Road. There is currently a bus stop within the functional area of the intersection that will be upgraded to include a bus stop shelter. [1]
