The Jefferson Avenue Streetscape project extended the downtown streetscape look to the segment of Jefferson between St. Louis and Walnut street, with upgraded ramps and sidewalks to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, along with roadway improvements, stormwater infrastructure and lighting. A new traffic signal with pedestrian facilities was installed at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and St. Louis Street, while signal modifications and upgrades were constructed at the McDaniel and Walnut intersections. The project also included upgrades to electrical facilities in Jubilee Park to aid in future downtown event needs.
Construction of the Jefferson Avenue Streetscape improvements wrapped up in August at a cost of $1.8 million. It is funded through the ¼-cent Capital Improvement and 1/8-cent Transportation sales taxes.
