On Aug. 2, 2019, the city sent a letter to residents informing them that the engineering department will be presenting the project report to city council at the Aug. 26 city council study session recommending not to move forward with pedestrian improvements along 28th Street/Jordan Avenue for the foreseeable future due to the high costs and complications of the project.

On June 5, 2019, Bolton & Menk, the city's consultant for this project, completed a report detailing the feasibility and associated costs of providing a dedicated pedestrian or bike facility.
View the project report.
The consultant's recommendation is to revisit the feasibility of completing the improvement options as future projects are planned in the area. A stand-alone project is not feasible at this time due to the costs associated.
The city is looking for opportunities to enhance walking and biking along 28th Street West up to Cedar Lake Road as part of the Connect the Park plan.
An open house was held Nov. 28, 2017 to gather information from residents about how they walk and bike to Cedar Lake Road and if there are ways to improve the connection.
