Works / Transportation – Main Streets Independence Downtown Revitalization / Independence, Oregon

Independence Downtown RevitalizationGreenWorks provided design coordination for the City of Independence Downtown Revitalization project. The challenge was to accommodate a high volume of traffic on Main Street, while enhancing the business and pedestrian corridor through downtown. By widening the sidewalks and providing curb extensions at intersections, the city was able to control vehicular traffic, and greatly improve a pedestrian friendly streetscape within the downtown core. Additional improvements included period street furniture, historic lighting with planted hanging baskets, and accent trees.
