Elm & Highway 370 Interchange Enhancements - 17STR28

Construction Ward - 8

Project Description

Industrial, residential, and park traffic combine to make Elm Street/New Town Boulevard at Highway 370 a major gateway for traffic attempting to access commercial and historical portions of the City. Just fewer than 20,000 vehicles pass through this area each day; with additional industrial & residential construction in progress, this nexus will likely continue to see increases in traffic.  Currently, the four quadrants of the interchange consist of overgrown turf, overgrown vegetation, and concrete & rip-rap lined drainage ditches. The project will include a fiscally responsible landscaping plan for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the interchange.
