This is your connection to Downtown. Let’s work together to make it better. The East High streetscape project includes portions of Market Street, 9th Street, and East High Street. With the upcoming replacement of Belmont Bridge and available funding from the SMART SCALE prioritization process, now is the time to come together to identify priorities, discover and celebrate our community expectations, and add lasting value to this important link in the City’s transportation network.

We need your input!


The Process

A preferred design is expected to be selected by December 2018. A preliminary design will be approved by Spring 2019 following a formal public hearing allowing for right-of-way and/or easements to be purchased later in 2019. Construction is expected to start in Spring/Summer 2020.
