Creative Campus Roadway Improvements

Description 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 Washington.
  • 1B 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.
