Linden Street Renovation Project

Overview

Overview

Location Map

 

This project will renovate the section of Linden Street between Jefferson Street and Walnut Street. The Conceptual Design Phase, completed in 2014, recommends transforming this section of Linden into a “convertible street,” which is a roadway that can be closed to vehicular and bicycle traffic and transformed into a pedestrian gathering space during specialty events. 

To accomplish this, the City is planning significant urban design and landscaping improvements, gateway elements, roadway/pedestrian improvements, and utility improvements. The overall project budget is $3.5 million, with the design performed in 2019. Construction was originally planned for 2020, but has been postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Project Goals

By the end of the project, Linden Street will be transformed into a “convertible street” and will be much more pedestrian friendly and aesthetically pleasing. 

Parking spaces on Linden will be changed to parallel spaces instead of the diagonal parking spaces that currently exist. While some loss of parking will occur on Linden Street, additional new parking spaces will be created on Jefferson and Pine streets as part of this project. 

Schedule

Restriping of parking on Pine Street is scheduled to begin in late March, and the Jefferson Street section of the project will also begin around that time. 

Construction on Linden Street is expected to begin in mid-April 2020 and will continue through late summer. 

What can I expect?

Construction on Linden Street will be from building front to building front and will move in phases around Linden Street. Access to businesses will be available at all times. Parking is available on adjacent streets and in the Firehouse Alley Parking Structure, which contains more than 200 spaces available to the public. 

On Pine Street, residents will notice additional parking spaces once restriping is complete. 

Jefferson Street will ultimately be reduced to one eastbound lane and parallel parking spaces will be -added along Jefferson Street. 

How is this project funded?

The project budget is $3.5 million, and will come from the voter-approved Building on Basics program.
