This project will upgrade Shamrock Drive from approximately Newell Avenue to Flamingo Avenue to create a “complete street” to better serve bicyclists, pedestrians, motorists and adjacent neighborhoods and businesses. The project will include turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and crossings to help create a better bike/pedestrian connection between Eastway Drive and The Plaza and, eventually, to NoDa (North Davidson area) and the LYNX Blue Line.
The project team will be working with the Arts and Science Council and area residents to determine what art will be constructed and where it will be located along the project corridor.
