The City of Memphis’ Division of Engineering is proposing to modify the design of Park Avenue from Cherry to Mt. Moriah. The proposed configuration would reduce the outside lane widths and add bicycle lanes on both sides of the street and a center two-way turn lane. Analysis indicates that two travel lanes and a center two-way turn lane are sufficient to handle the volume of vehicular traffic on this segment and would result in safety improvements.
Due to public health restrictions regarding COVID-19, we will be taking comments through an online survey in lieu of a traditional public input meeting.
The survey for Park Avenue will close at 11:59 PM on June 15, 2022.
- The diagrams presented in the surveys are illustrative only and are not to scale.
- The City is not proposing to widen any of these streets. These projects will only re-surface the streets between the existing curbs.
Furthermore, you may provide input via telephone at 901-636-6710 or email at Alex.Uhlmann@memphistn.gov. The City will accept telephone and email comments through 5:00 PM on June 15, 2022. Please note that due to COVID-19 our office is not fully staffed and that we may have to return your call.
