Clematis Streetscape Project


The Clematis Streetscape Project is a multi-phase approach to improving one of the City’s most beloved streets Clematis Street, in the heart of its downtown to make it more people-friendly with modern infrastructure and vibrant design elements with a focus on pedestrians.

Highlights include a curb-less street that prioritizes the pedestrian; narrower traffic lanes to slow cars’ speed; high-visibility crosswalks and mid-block crossings; shade trees; wider sidewalks; and reduced parking spaces to make room for “people space.” The City recently completed Phase 1 of the Clematis Streetscape Project from 300th block of Clematis Street between South Dixie Highway and South Olive Avenue. Phase 2 of Clematis Streetscape is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2019, and will redesign additional blocks on Clematis Street. For more information visit: http://wpb.org/clematisstreetscape
