What To Expect:
Improvements include wider sidewalks with more shade trees, narrowed traffic lanes and a curbless street design, to allow for an easier and more enjoyable pedestrian experience along the award-winning corridor.
When complete, this project—with wider sidewalks, more shade trees, and more room for bicyclists– will make one of our City’s most visited and most popular streets even more attractive to visitors and economic development, which is in line with my vision of creating a community of opportunity for all in our city. This project is a first step toward ushering in a renaissance, of sorts, along Clematis Street, which means only great things for our downtown. – Mayor Keith James
