Project Details

The Carolina Pines Avenue project is located between Lake Wheeler Road and S. Saunders Street. The corridor includes a lake and well used public park as well as a residential neighborhood. The goal of the streetscape project is to improve mobility and connectivity for pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic while enhancing safety throughout the corridor. The proposed improvements include curb and gutter, with a sidewalk on one side and a multi-use path on the opposite side. Traffic calming measures, street lights, landscaping, and a boardwalk over the lake are also proposed.

This project will include stand-alone or integrated public art, which may include stand-alone sculpture, artwork sited at stormwater catchment site(s), and/or artwork integrated into pedestrian paving, lighting, benches/bike racks or other site elements. The artist will work closely with the design team, project stakeholders, and neighborhood groups to ensure a successful outcome.

This project is part of the Percent for Art program and is a part of the Carolina Pines Avenue Street Improvement Project.
