Project phase

 Upcoming events




 Project updates

​​This project originated from the Northeast Corridor Infrastructure Program (NECI)​ planning effort. The project proposes to provide a new street connection by extending Philemon Avenue to 36th Street. The conceptual cross section includes two travel lanes, bike lanes, curb & gutter, sidewalk & planting strip, on-street parking and street trees. This extension is part of a greater plan to create an alternative and parallel route to North Tryon Street.​ 

  • ​​To connect Craighead and 36th Street and parallel the Blue Line Extension transit corridor

  • To promote economic development by providing new roadway connections that support and encourage transit-supportive development near the 36th Street LYNX station

​To be determined​​

​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014 and will vote on further bond financing in 2016, 2018 and 2020. For this project, if voters approve funding, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published. Learn more about the Community Investment Plan at​
