NW 5th Avenue Streetscape Project Phase II
Location: NW 5th Avenue (600 - 1000 Block)
Start Date: January 2010
Completion Date: Construction Complete
Available Funding: $808,525.00
Former CRA District: Fifth Ave Pleasant Street
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 II includes a revitalized streetscape of wider sidewalks, new crosswalks, brick hardscaping, underground utilities and decorative roadway and pedestrian lighting. The new roadway will help transform NW 5th Avenue into a showcase for the district and for the City as a whole.
