Long Range Planning

West O Streetscape Enhancement Plan

West O Street has long been identified by the City as a significant entryway corridor in need of improvements. In 2013, an initial round of streetscape enhancements were made to West O, highlighting the entryway's historic significance as part of the Detroit-Lincoln-Denver (D-L-D) Highway. The improvements included an interpretive plaza near 3rd and O Street, median plantings east of Highway 77, and decorative lighting, banners, and street trees east of Highway 77 and between Sun Valley Boulevard and Harris Overpass.

Building on the 2013 enhancement efforts, this project is intended to address both aesthetic and functional improvements along the corridor, setting the stage for added private reinvestment. Potential improvements may include street trees and understory landscaping, gateway and monumentation elements, public art, sidewalk and trail connections, public transit facilities, crosswalks, site furnishings, and banners or other branding enhancements. The limits of the projects extend from the Harris Overpass to NW 56th Street, with a particular emphasis on the Sun Valley Boulevard, Highway 77 and NW 48th Street intersections.

Please continue to visit this page throughout the project to view updates on public meetings, proposed design concepts, and more.
