Posted on

The Innovation Cornerstone at Woven Works Park at the corner of Lindsay and Murrow was completed and dedicated with an opening celebration on Setptember 24, 2016.

Construction on the northern section from Fisher/Greene to Eugene, down Eugene from Fisher to Smith began at the beginning of November. Construction on the northern section continues and has moved to the east side of Eugene Street (directly adjacent to Deep Roots Market). Traffic continues to be northbound only. Parking is still accessible for the businesses impacted by construction: Crafted the Art of Street Food, Deep Roots Market, Joymongers Brewing Company, and Preyer Brewing Company. Anticipated timeline for construction of this section is 120-150 days at which time Eugene Street will re-open fully with two-way traffic.  This phase also includes the construction of the triangular park at Smith/Battleground/Eugene and work on this park is expected to happen in January/February.  The next phase will be on Fisher Avenue from Eugene to Greene and construction here will take place between March and July 2017.

The southern section along Bragg Street between Eugene and MLK has been awarded to Yates Construction.  Anticipated start of construction in March/April 2017.

The eastern section along Murrow Boulevard from Gate City Boulevard heading north, underneath Summit Avenue, and continuing on to the intersection of Fisher and Greene– construction anticipated to start in summer 2017.

Design work on the functional design began late spring 2015 on the western leg along the railroad tracks from Spring Garden to Smith Street. A final engineered design expected in summer 2017, and construction expected following that. Click here to see maps of Phase 4 from Smith Street to Markland Avenue.
