    Design

    We've hosted two design meetings for this project as well as met with Downtown Grand Rapids, Inc​. Through these meetings and our survey, we've heard support for:
    • changing the street from a one-way to a two-way between Maple and Fulton.
    • maintaining the street as a one-way between Fulton and Library.
    • installing bike facilities in the right of way.
    • maintaining as much parking as possible with the new design.
    • greening the street with the existing and/or new trees.
    • keeping as much of the existing green space towards Maple as possible. 
    • creating an asymmetrical design for the street as described in GR Forward.
    We are using this feedback to inform the final design, which is not yet decided. Please check back in the future.

    ​Business Guide
    We understand that businesses are sensitive to construction. For this reason, we’ve created a guide containing tips and tricks for businesses during construction.​​
