Planning for the Franklin Boulevard Transformation project began in January 2019, with the goal to improve Franklin Boulevard from Alder Street to Interstate-5, including Garden Avenue. It aims to transform Franklin Boulevard from an auto-focused state highway into a pleasant, multi-modal, urban corridor that is safe for all people, including those who walk, bike, roll, take the bus and drive.
Since then, staff has engaged with the community through multiple public involvement activities, including two workshops, online surveys and meetings with interested parties. Through public input and professional analysis, the three corridor alternatives that were shared in May 2019 have been evaluated and revised into one preferred design alternative, which will be shared at the Open House.
Online Open House
