220 East Avenue

As early as 2010, this property was identified as a “total take”. The new, steeper slope generated by the roadway lowering would have made the use of the property owner’s driveway too hazardous.

After the rights-of-way agreement in connection with the roadway project failed to receive approval, the City and the DOT transferred the rights-of-way to the railway bridge project for construction staging instead. At that time, plans were also developed to put in a parking lot for the railroad station.

This private residence was the subject of an extended effort to resist eminent domain proceedings. The former owner has since passed away.
