West Broadway medians

Pedestrian and vehicle traffic passes by the medians in front of Thomas Jefferson High School on West Broadway and 25th Street.

The Council Bluffs City Council will vote tonight on a resolution that would remove medians from the remaining construction scheduled on West Broadway.

The resolution would eliminate remaining medians not yet constructed in phases three, four and five of the city's West Broadway reconstruction project, according to resolution language on the council's agenda. Phase four work will begin this spring, with a section of median — carried over from phase three — currently part of the plan. It would be eliminated if the resolution passes tonight.

There are no raised medians planned in phase four, while phase five would have medians.

The resolution would remove any medians going forward, likely bringing to an end the back-and-forth over medians that has ensnared the council and city for more than three years.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. tonight at City Hall, 209 Pearl St.
