Momentum Building on South 2nd Street?

Momentum, development, and a touch of new life on South 2nd Street in Walker's Point? Yes. The complete street redesign for S. 2nd St., was just the start. Although there is still work to be completed, the street has re-opened to two-way traffic, the bike lanes have been painted, the grass has been planted, and the wider sidewalks are in place. And now there are signs of new life on the street.

S. 2nd Street Redevelopment Concept Gains Momentum

S. 2nd Street Redevelopment Concept Gains Momentum

The June 24th, 2009 Public Works Committee Meeting was a good day for the efforts to rebuild S. 2nd street as a complete street. The Department of Public Works presented three options as possibilities for the rebuilding of S. 2nd Street. The first option was to simply resurface the street, with essentially no pedestrian improvements. The second option would resurface the street at the same width, but would included painted bike lanes, reduced travels lanes, and street trees. However it is the third option that is closest to a complete street.

S. 2nd Street Redesign Concept is a Pretty GOOD One

S. 2nd Street Redesign Concept is a Pretty GOOD One
