This isn’t anything new, but I was just exploring the City’s website and found information about which streets will likely be receiving streetscape projects in the future. As I’m sure everyone has noticed, the Hillsborough St. project has been completed, and I was wondering when another project would start.
Currently, it looks like the City is working on several streetscape projects:
• Peace St. between St. Marys and West (scheduled to solicit construction bids in February, so this will more than likely be next)
• Oberlin Rd. between Pullen and Bedford
Additionally, there is a “Green Street” planned for East Cabarrus St.
The City’s website has a priority list of the 30 or so projects they’ve identified, and it’s an interesting thing to look at. I’m very excited to see more of these projects in the future, and wanted to create a thread devoted to it for further discussion.
What are your thoughts on these projects? How do you think they impact the surrounding areas?
