Sullivant Avenue Streetscape

Sullivant Avenue Comprehensive Streetscape Improvement Project

The Department of Public Service is leading a comprehensive roadway rehabilitation project on Sullivant Avenue between I-70 and Hague Avenue. This $10 million investment on nearly two miles of Sullivant is part of Mayor Ginther’s multi-department revitalization plan for the corridor to support and empower the neighborhood.

Infrastructure improvements are being completed by the Divisions of Design and Construction, Infrastructure Management and Traffic Management, including:

  •  Sidewalk replacement
  •  Pedestrian and mobility safety enhancements
  •  Roadway repair
  •  Alley rehabilitation
  •  Stormwater ponding mitigation
  •  Replacement of STOP signs and damaged/faded traffic signs
  •  New pavement markings
  •  Traffic signal replacement and new LED street lights
  •  Sullivant Bright public art, artistic lighting at the I-70 bridge underpass

In 2020, nearly 2,800 feet of sidewalk on the north side of Sullivant was repaired or replaced to ensure safe and equitable access for all users. Similar sidewalk improvements were made in 2021 on the south side of the street.

Roadway surface improvements made in 2020 included 73,100 feet of crack sealing. Surface treatment was completed on alleys running north and south of Sullivant between I-70 and Hague Avenue.

In 2021-2022, work has continued to relocate utility poles, install new LED street lights and upgrade traffic signals.

Beginning March 2022, new marked pedestrian crosswalks will be installed with shortened crossings via curb extensions and refuge islands. Bus bulb curb extensions will be placed at several bus stops to provide more pedestrian space and allow transit vehicles to make more efficient in-lane stops. These crossing and bus bulb features take the place of the temporary crossing and bus bulbs installed last year via Sullivant Bright plus add some additional locations. Also included in this work are driveway replacements at select locations to improve pedestrian mobility, decorative/specialty lighting at the Sullivant Avenue Underpass at I-70, and construction activities to facilitate the placement of public art as part of the Sullivant Bright project.
