Seneca St./Larkinville Streetscape

Streetscape Design

Development of a “complete street” concept and enhanced pedestrian-friendly streetscape through iconic Larkinville, a former factory and manufacturing district transformed into a mixed-use neighborhood. The first step of the project was to promote alternative transportation methods, which was achieved by reducing the number of travel lanes on Seneca Street from four to two and implementing several traffic calming measures such as speed tables, curb bump-outs and patterned crosswalks. The streetscape was enhanced by a variety of trees, shrubs and raised planting beds that bring the space to life, while sustainable elements such as the re-use of existing pavement and a runoff irrigation system help keep it that way.
