Public Meeting held on February 21, 2024

Main St/15th Ave, The Rust Belt Area at 12th Avenue, and The Bend at the riverfront.  


Design is underway. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025 and be completed in 2027.  


Barriers like railroad crossings and lack of pedestrian infrastructure are keeping our Greater Downtown areas separated, which limits connectivity and future growth. 


This project is funded in part  by a $23.7 million federal RAISE grant.
