 2014 Sidewalk Gaps Project
Print

Description: The purpose of The 2014 Sidewalk Gaps Project is to increase the importance of connectivity by maximizing opportunities for walking, while enhancing: safety, convenience, and strategic improvements, in addition to expansion, of the city’s sidewalk system. The following parameters were observed in order to achieve the goal of The 2014 Sidewalk Gaps Project.

  • Design the sidewalk system to be safe and barrier free for all citizens.
  • Plan the sidewalk system to connect origins and destinations.
  • Promote stewardship of the sidewalk system.

Currently, the 2014 Sidewalk Gaps Project consists of constructing five-foot wide concrete sidewalks along portions of South Mays Street, from West Logan Street to Gattis School Road; and four-foot wide sidewalks along sections of Somerset Drive and Peachtree Valley Drive; as well as constructing five-foot wide sidewalks along segments of Greenlawn from Gattis School Rd. to Dell Way. A large portion of these proposed sidewalk paths will eliminate spaces, or gaps, between points where permanent sidewalks currently exist and connect citizens to destinations. Many of these existing gap areas are currently characterized by a dirt trail due to constant pedestrian use.

Proposed project limits:

  • South Mays Section- +/- 2,380 linear feet of five-foot wide sidewalk
  • Somerset Section- +/- 1,536 linear feet of four-foot wide sidewalk
  • Greenlawn Section- +/- 2,591 linear feet of five-foot wide sidewalk

Budget: $298,000—**subject to change
