Pedestrian promenade on Lanier Avenue between Hwy 85 and Tiger Trail and on Hwy 85 between Stonewall Ave. and Lafayette Ave
This was an LCI (Livable Centers Initiative) project to construct a pedestrian promenade on Lanier Avenue between Hwy 85 and Tiger Trail and on Hwy 85 between Stonewall Ave. and Lafayette Ave.The work included replacing the three westbound traffic lanes on Lanier with two traffic lanes, a 4-foot wide bike lane on the north side and an 8-foot wide brick paver sidewalk that is separated from the street by a landscaped shoulder on the south side.The work on Hwy 85 included enlarging a portion of the brick paver sidewalk on the west side of Hwy 85 between Stonewall and Lanier and replacing the existing concrete sidewalk with a wider brick paver sidewalk on the west side of Hwy 85 north of Hwy 54.Also all curb ramps and crosswalks in the project limits were upgraded to meet ADA standards. In addition, streetscaping with trees, pedestrian level street lighting and benches were provided.
