The Sabine Street Promenade project, located along Sabine Street between 4th and 6th Streets, gives priority to bicyclists and pedestrians by creating a festival street atmosphere.
This project consists of transforming a one-way roadway and sidewalk into a right-of-way to enhance connectivity between the existing Lance Armstrong Bikeway and the historic building fabric. The proposal to create a thoroughfare for cyclists and pedestrians along the west side of the right-of-way is intended to provide an environment for events without disrupting local access for vehicular traffic.
Construction Time Frame
Spring 2018 – Summer 2019
*5th Street will remain one-way from Red River Street to I-35 until summer 2019.
Project Update (7/23/19)
The Contractor is completing the east side of the 500 block and scheduled to flip to the west side on August 3rd.
The west side includes telecom conduit, traffic signal conduit, waterline, wastewater service line, storm drain grate inlet, sidewalk and roadway.
The last phase of the project requires the telecom companies to pull fiber underground, splice or establish new connections and then the overhead lines and poles can be removed.
The contractor will then install concrete or mulch in those areas where the poles were previously located.
The overall project is expected to be complete in October 2019.
Overhead utility lines shown in this photo have been relocated and will be removed towards the end of the project.
