Allocation of $3 million of funds for downtown sidewalks, lighting, curb ramps, and other pedestrian improvements.
Why is It Important?
Citizen feedback during the Fayetteville Mobility Plan and the Parking Master Plan indicated a desire for better walkability in the downtown area, especially between the downtown square and the entertainment district. Poor lighting, narrow and obstructed sidewalks, lack of curb ramps, and need for additional crosswalks were all identified as areas of concern. This allocation of funds will allow for implementation of these types of improvements, on street corridors within the downtown area.
What is the Current Status?
Church Avenue - Mountain to Spring
Construction of the improvements are mostly complete. The utility companies will be relocating the overhead utilities underground in conduit installed by City crews. Once these facilities are relocated, the poles can be removed and the sidewalk can be completed.
