Midtown Placemaking (Monroe and Thomasville Roads)
This project makes streetscape enhancements and placemaking improvements in Midtown, along Monroe Street and Thomasville Road. Enhancements will expand areas for safe pedestrian activity and improve area aesthetics along these two major thoroughfares. As was the case on Gaines Street, these streetscape improvements may promote reinvestment and increased pedestrian traffic for area retailers. This project also seeks to reconfigure the five-points intersection, which should improve automobile and pedestrian accessibility to the surrounding properties.
Creates a unique, pedestrian-friendly sense of place in the Midtown area.
Streetscaping improvements include: Wider sidewalks, Enhanced crosswalks, Benches, Lighting, Landscaping, and Signage.
Improvements at the five-points intersection of Meridian Road/ Thomasville Road /Seventh Avenue.
Estimated Cost: $22 million
Streetscaping on Monroe Street (Thomasville Road to Tharpe Street) and Thomasville Road (Monroe Street to Post Road).
