Capital Blvd. North Corridor Study

A vision and specific policies to guide investment and development

The Capital Boulevard North Corridor Study will create a vision and specific policies to guide investment and development on Capital Boulevard between I-440 and I-540 (map). The information gathered in conjunction with public meetings and other means will provide a framework of data, observations, and community input that will serve as the basis for the study. The city is developing the study with a consulting team led by WSP USA. The project team has created an interactive web site to show the initial proposals for the study (online story map). These proposals are also summarized in a short handout available in English and Spanish.

For questions, more information, or to provide your comments via email or phone, please contact John Anagnost.
