Where: Center for Healthy Living- Sarah Garland Jones Building at 2600 Nine Mile Road
What is it: The design details for the Nine Mile Road Streetscare Project and the 29th St Bike-Walk Boulevard.

The Nine Mile Road Streetscape Project

This project has the aim to “improve safety, accessibility and mobility along the corridor from 25th St to I-64. The revitalization and streetscape improvements invlude the construction of sidewalks, entrance repairs, curb ramps, corner extensions, crosswalk marking, pedestrian lighting and planting street trees”

The 29th Street Bike-Walk Boulevard

– Traffic calming to slow traffic on N 29th St and improvements to make crossing busy streets easier for everyone

– Act as a safe street through Church Hill to connect people to places they need to go – like churches, schools, playgrounds, parks, housing, and neighborhood amenities like the Robinson Theater, and Bon Secours Community Hospital

– Be part of a biking and walking network in the East End that will link up with downtown, the Virginia Capital Trail, and Rockett’s Landing

This is also a meeting hosted by Cynthia Newbille on the The Nine Mile Road Streetscape Enhancement Project.

The event is happening Tuesday March 13 from 6 to 8 P.M. at the Bon Secours Sarah Garland Jones Center on 2600 Nine Mile Road. Parking at the lot can be limited but you can park on the side streets.

CHPN will be there and we’d love to hear from you- stay for a moment and we’d love to hear your reactions to these projects.
