West Avenue Streetscapes

West Avenue Improvements

West Avenue connects several key civic institutions, but currently lacks safe pedestrian infrastructure and lighting.

The design, from South Street to Dickson, includes continuous sidewalks and will increase street tree canopy, provide stormwater mitigation (LID), and improve the safety of both pedestrian and bicycle circulation. 

A broad, 20-foot-wide promenade will be the new pedestrian route parallel to West Avenue. Shaded by an allée of trees, it integrates seating, art, and lighting.

Several cross streets will be improved to provide better bicycle connections between the Square and the Razorback Greenway. (See image below)
