NW 5th Avenue Streetscape Project Phase I
NW 5th Avenue Streetscape Project Phase I


NW 5th Avenue is a mixed-use corridor lined with residences and neighborhood businesses that has traditionally functioned as epicenter of activity for the Fifth Avenue/Pleasant Street communities. The CRA is committed to strengthening and affirming the significance of this important street through on-going redevelopment initiatives in both the private and public realms. As part of this effort, the CRA has systematically pursued phased utility undergrounding along the corridor. Phase I east of NW 6th Street is complete. Phase II includes a revitalized streetscape of wider sidewalks, new crosswalks, brick hardscaping, and decorative pedestrian lighting. Such will help transform NW 5th Avenue into a showcase for the district and for the City as a whole.
