Sullivant Avenue Streetscape
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 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 and landscaping
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 are being 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.
Design and engineering is in progress to construct curb extensions, bus bulbs and parklet areas in 2022 that increase safety, space and access for pedestrians and COTA users and shorten the distance to cross the street.
In 2021 and 2022, work will continue to relocate utility poles, install new LED street lights and upgrade traffic signals.
