Monroe Street Reconstruction Planning Process Meeting

Monroe Street Reconstruction Planning Process Meeting

When: 6:30-8:30 pm, Wednesday, March 9

Where: Edgewood College Washburn Heritage Room

Monroe Street Reconstruction

Monroe Street is scheduled for reconstruction in 2018.  $150,000 of pedestrian safety improvements are planned for 2016, with an anticipated $9,000,000 for reconstruction in 2018.  Given that every Dudgeon Monroe resident lives within a few blocks of Monroe Street, the reconstruction is a legacy project of vital importance to our neighborhood.  It provides us with a real opportunity to re-imagine Monroe Street. How might this street, the heart of our neighborhood, be redesigned?
