Hilltop West Broad Street Streetscape

DESCRIPTION AND BENEFITS:

This project will deliver streetscape improvements to West Broad Street in the Hilltop from the City’s western corporation limit just east of Wilson Road to Terrace Avenue. A streetscape project was completed on W. Broad Street between Terrace Avenue and Highland Avenue in 2016. This new project will pick up at the western terminus of the previous streetscape and provide multi-modal improvements along Broad Street. The initial phases of the project include a study phase that will explore alternatives for the streetscape with public involvement. Following the study phase, the project will proceed into detailed design.

Current Status (as of 2-14-2019)

The City is engaging its consulting team to begin detailed development of the streetscape outside the curbs and to further explore conceptual roadway alternatives (i.e. between the curbs), including alternatives with on-street parking on Broad Street. The roadway alternative presented at the public meeting, two lanes in each direction with a center turn lane and bike lanes, remains in consideration but has not been advanced. The team will conduct additional public involvement once the additional roadway alternatives are developed.
