The Juniper Complete Street Project is a complex construction plan that spans 12 blocks between 14th Street and Ponce de Leon. It involves public agencies and organizations, and includes significant design and construction challenges with unique funding streams.
The project will create a bikeway with improved pedestrian amenities to keep traffic moving at a steady pace. New construction will include wider sidewalks, lighting, trash and recycling receptacles, and a network of stormwater planters that will direct pedestrians between Midtownâ€™s commercial and residential areas. The planters will manage rainwater and reduce demand on the city’s infrastructure.
Plans also include building a six- to seven-foot separated bike lane adjacent to the western sidewalk that will be protected by a wide, raised and/or planted barrier at each intersection. The bike lane buffer will include vertical landscape planters, striping, and bollards.
