Project Description: Complete streets would positively enhance the East Main Street corridor (connecting the Downtown to the Whitewater Valley Gorge). The connection to the Whitewater Valley Gorge will provide another way for Earlham College students to access the center city from the west. One of the goals of Positively Richmond is to create a safe walkable/bike-able community to encourage wellness, fitness and as another unique asset that the downtown living offers.
Through Partnership With Stellar Communities: The city will facilitate design and installation of dedicated walking space, biking space and vehicle accommodations. In addition, traffic calming measures such as "bumpouts," rain gardens, lighting and directional signage would be installed.
