The Juniper Street Transformation Project spans twelve blocks between 14th Street and Ponce de Leon. The project would create a high quality bikeway and improved pedestrian amenities while also ensuring that vehicular traffic moves through at a steady (yet calmer) pace. Plans include new wider sidewalks, street trees, pedestrian‐scaled lighting, trash/recycling receptacles, and a network of stormwater planters that localize rainwater management, thereby reducing demand on City infrastructure. Adjacent to the western sidewalk would be a six-to-seven-foot separated bike lane protected by a wide (typically eleven foot) raised/planted barrier at intersections. The bike lane buffer between intersections would consist of vertical landscape planters, striping and bollards. Parallel parking within portions of the buffer would provide another layer of protection for those walking or biking. The roadway would include two vehicular travel lanes (ten-to-eleven feet wide each) with additional dedicated turn lanes at key intersections with higher traffic demand.
Construction is estimated to begin by early-2019 and is anticipated to last 18-24 months. Please stay tuned for project updates! If you have general comments or questions regarding construction, please contact email@example.com.
