About the Project
The project includes both infrastructure and streetscape/aesthetic improvements.
Infrastructure improvements include asphalt, curb and gutter repairs, sidewalk and ADA improvements. The project also includes new or modified traffic signals at 7th Street, 8th Street, and 10th Street, and will establish two northbound lanes on 8th Street for easier I-380 access.
Streetscape improvements include new decorative brick and concrete parkway pavers, tree plantings, decorative parking lot screening, street light upgrading, landscaping and benches.
The project is in partnership with the MedQuarter District; the streetscape and aesthetic improvements are privately funded.
