West End Improvement Projects

March 26, 2014 in National Real Estate

As some of you may have noticed there has been lots of construction going on around Pearl St. A lot of us have been curious on whats being built etc. The city will be installing many new things, read below on what is getting installed:

  • a raised pedestrian crossing and curb extensions at the intersection of 10th and Pearl streets;
  • a curb extension at the southwest corner of the intersection of 9th and Pearl streets;
  • wider sidewalks for improved pedestrian movement and additional patio seating;
  • kiosks and way finding elements (totems) to establish a sense of direction and place on the “West End;”
  • new bus stops on eastbound and westbound Pearl Street;
  • new street trees, grates and irrigation systems;
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sidewalk access improvements; and
  • other sidewalk amenities and pedestrian enhancements between 7th and 11th streets.

Here are some pictures of what West End Pearl Street will look like after the projects are completed.
