    RIVER ARTS DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION PROJECT

     

    Project Description

    The River Arts District Transportation Improvement Project (RADTIP) aims to improve the transportation infrastructure on a 2.2 mile stretch of roadway which includes Lyman Street and a portion of Riverside Drive. The project is currently funded for preliminary engineering, environmental study, and preliminary design. By completing these required steps in the process, the city is positioning itself to be eligible for additional funding for construction. The current studies are funded through an appropriation from the Federal Highway Administration.

    The final project will improve the transportation infrastructure by upgrading and possibly re-aligning the road, adding measures to control stormwater, constructing greenways (multi-use trails), adding sidewalks, constructing turn lanes at intersections (as needed), and possibly adding other amenities such as on-street parking, transit stops, and landscaping.

    The project is a 2.2 mile section of the larger Wilma Dykeman RiverWay, a 17-mile corridor along the French Broad River and Swannanoa River. This project focuses on improvements to the public infrastructure in which would support implementation of a portion of the Wilma Dykeman RiverWay Master Plan, a plan spearheaded by RiverLink.
