The City has been working with the community and local stakeholders since October 2018 on a concept plan for Franklin Blvd. As of August 2023, the concept plan has been decided. A concept is not an engineering design however, meaning there are still many details to be figured out over the coming years before construction begins in 2026. The concept plan was created to develop the overall layout for the corridor in order to obtain public feedback, develop a preliminary cost estimate to acquire funding, and to proceed with environmental documentation and permitting. The planners and engineers are working closely with stakeholders along the corridor as the engineering designs are drafted.
