Urban Trail Phase 2 – Richmond

The third of three phases of a new streetscape and multi-use trail currently slated for construction in 2024, extends along Main Street, Ft. Wayne Avenue and E Street in downtown Richmond, Indiana.

Given the volume of traffic and extent of one-way streets in the district, pedestrian safety and traffic calming were deemed priorities, achieved by reducing travel lane widths and placement of appropriate landscape plantings at intersections.

Design elements include decorative sidewalks and crosswalks, ADA improvements, trees, other low-maintenance landscape plantings and lighting using similar materials and finishes from the first two phases.

An extensive public input initiative included four public presentations to allow residents to share their thoughts, concerns and ideas with local leaders and the design and engineering team and obtain public consensus.

Main Street – New Albany

The City of New Albany engaged a multidiscipline consultant team of landscape architects and engineers to develop a vision for their historic main street corridor, Mansion Row.  Broadened pedestrian ways, planted medians, lighting, strategically-placed raingardens, decorative pavement and custom address markers highlight this historic corridor. Landstory delivered a contextual and unique streetscape solution.  Gateway monuments located at each end incorporate patterns of the surrounding historic architecture and New Albany’s industrial heritage as a steel truss manufacturer.  Wide, raised medians were added and enhanced with ornamental plantings, trees and low maintenance perennials.  Segments of historic limestone curbs were excavated and reoriented in the medians as edge treatments to lend authenticity to the streetscape as part of the preservation of this important New Albany corridor.
