Temporary Greenway Demonstration
A temporary greenway (paint and materials on top of existing streets) has been installed along the 3000 – 3500 blocks of Irving Avenue North, between Folwell and Jordan parks. Current plans call for the temporary greenway to remain in place for up to one year so that residents and the City can evaluate how it works and assess interest in a permanent greenway.
Features of the temporary greenway include:
This temporary greenway follows three years of community engagement with neighbors including extensive outreach to residents and property owners on the 5-block route. Over the summer of 2015, many of the neighbors living on and near Irving Avenue shared their thoughts and ideas and the City used this community input to design the temporary greenway.
