Garland Ave to Gregg Ave: Pedestrian improvements, to connect retail and restaurant areas on Garland Avenue to residential areas and the Razorback Greenway, and pedestrian safety improvements at the Garland/North intersection.
College Ave Intersection: Left turn lane for west bound traffic east of College Ave, and general intersection alignment and signalization upgrades to reduce congestion.
College Ave to Mission Blvd: Pedestrian improvements; intersection improvements at Hillcrest.
