Building on the early design concept work developed by the DDA (see below,) the City is in the process of creating a “6th Street Corridor Master Plan, Economic Assessment and Design Standards.” Click here for more information. With the new alignment of the Grand Ave Bridge, possibilities exist for a re-envisioned 6th Street. This neighborhood will have renewed vitality with less vehicles, more ease of movement for pedestrians and opportunities for a downtown main street like environment.
6th Street improvements are planned to begin construction in the springs of 2018 with the roundabout at 6th Street and Laurel. Changes to the street cross section are being studied to narrow the street and create opportunities for redevelopment.
