The Designer for the Jackson Avenue Streetscapes/Stabilization Project is Vaughn & Melton Consulting Engineers, Inc.
The project originated in 2005 through funding from a Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) High Priority Project for the Upper Second Creek/Old City Greenway, PIN 107380.00. The TDOT contract calls for the City of Knoxville to design and construct a pedestrian connection of approximately 2400 linear feet from the intersection of World's Fair Park Drive and Grand Avenue to the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Gay Street. The HPP funding was distributed over a 5-year period beginning in 2005 at 20% per year. The proposed project will accomplish the desired pedestrian connection and the streetscape improvements will encourage redevelopment along the Jackson Avenue corridor.
