This project is the final piece of a series of streetscape improvements along Broadway Avenue.

Several improvements along the corridor were identified through a planning process headed by the Department of City Planning. This project, the culmination of that effort, consists of design and construction of the following improvements:

  • Realignment of Beechview Avenue to meet Broadway Avenue at a single T-intersection
  • Expansion of the existing sidewalk space at the Broadway/Beechview/Hampshire intersection
  • Pedestrian and plaza amenities at the intersection
  • Pedestrian-scale lighting
  • Landscape improvements on both sides of the realigned Beechview Avenue
  • Revised signal poles at the intersection
  • Other improvements, to be identified through the design process

“As Beechview has become a nexus of sorts for the Latin American community, I hope the plaza's design can incorporate those cultural elements”

“I envision a Broadway Ave Plaza that is truly a complete design that puts people first and not vehicles and parking. Let's welcome everyone!”
