 Project updates

​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.

  • To provide the residents, Johnson C. Smith University and commercial property owners with a safe road system, including pedestrian and ​bike​ amenities and access to the CityLYNX Gold Line station

  • To provide residents a pedestrian-friendly and safe route to the proposed Stewart Creek Greenway, Martin Luther King Park, the future development of Old Savona Mills and the CityLYNX Gold Line station on West Trade

  • To keep residents informed of key milestones with mailers and website updates during each phase​​

A series of neighborhood meetings, public meetings, stakeholder interviews and charrettes were held during the pre-planning phase for the West Trade/Rozzelles Ferry CNIP. The project team met with more than 400 residents and attended more than 60 neighborhood meetings. To view details, visit the West Trade/Rozzelles CNIP page​.​​​​
