This project will transform State Street into a pedestrian-friendly street. It will be a connection between major trip generators at each end of the corridor, as well as Johnson C. Smith University and the private development of Old Savona Mills. This project is intended to encourage future development within the Eleanor Heights community and provide access to the CityLYNX Gold Line station and neighborhood businesses.
This project will add new sidewalk in key locations where no sidewalk is currently located. Various traffic-calming amenities, such as bulb-out curb extensions, will be added at key locations along State Street. Sidewalk repair in key locations will be done during construction.
