Monroe-Adams Corridor Placemaking
This project provides infrastructure that is essential for creating a walkable, mixed-use district. These improvements will create safe, comfortable streets for pedestrians, transit users, and cyclists. The placemaking improvements will also improve the appearance, comfort, and safety of public streets and private property creating a pedestrian environment. This pedestrian environment may increase patronage at local businesses and encourage urban infill and mixed-use buildings.

Streetscape improvements may include:
- Underground utilities
- Intersection crossings at South Monroe Street and Adams Street.
Street parking (where possible) on Harrison Street, Pershing Street, Jennings Street, Perkins Road, and Kestner Street .
Estimated Cost: $7 million
