This Week on Carroll Creek: September 17, 2014

Where the Sidewalk No Longer Ends
In less than 8 weeks, significant progress has been made between the Delaplaine Arts Center and South East Street.  Where the sidewalk used to end, the grade has been brought up to continue the shared use path. Construction is moving at a fast pace in this area, and The City expects it to move beyond South East Street soon.

About the Next Phase of Carroll Creek ParkThis next phase of park improvements will include new and widened multi-use paths, landscape planters, lighting, water features and crosswalk improvements. The work will occur primarily between Bentz and S. Market Street and between the Delaplaine Arts Center and East Patrick Street. More than $100M in new and renovated private construction is planned along the new park/path sections which will eventually result in hundreds of new jobs and increased state and local tax revenue.
