Creative Campus Roadway Improvements
and Benefits: This
project will upgrade the roadway, sidewalk, pedestrian safety and aesthetic
elements within the City of Columbus right-of-way in the Columbus College of
Art and Design area.
The Phase 1 project will be
divided into two parts:
- 1A Gay
Street: 1A will be a street
reconstruction, including sidewalks, pedestrian safety, brick pavers, street
lighting, bollards and trees on Gay Street between Cleveland Avenue and
Washington Avenue. Raised intersections will be installed to promote traffic
calming for Gay Street at Cleveland Avenue, Ninth Street and Washington Avenue.
All existing above-ground utilities will be relocated to an underground
conduit. Parking will be removed from Gay Street between Cleveland and
Cleveland Avenue, Ninth Street and Washington Avenue: 1B
will include resurfacing of roadway, sidewalk, pedestrian safety and aesthetic
elements on Cleveland Avenue, Ninth Street and Washington Avenue between
Long Street and Broad Street. A planted median will be installed on
Cleveland Avenue; which, coupled with mid-block crossings will improve
pedestrian safety and traffic into campus. All existing above-ground utilities
will be relocated to an underground conduit.
