Description: The City of Waco received a TxDOT grant to provide sidewalk, ADA improvements, bike lanes, parking, lighting, and landscape improvements along Elm Ave. (MLK Blvd. to Garrison St.).
The existing sidewalks were not ADA-compliant and many of the existing sidewalks had deteriorated greatly. The project intended to enhance/improve these features, provide a bicycle lane through the corridor, enhance the parking situation and provide much-needed lighting. The project also included landscaping and other pedestrian elements such as gathering areas and park benches.
