Riopelle Streetscape Project

Construction Update! 

As you may have recently seen, we have been wrapping up much of our construction activities for the season. We were able to complete almost all of the hardscape elements of the project leaving us with a few remaining items to be completed in the spring when the weather is warmer.

We will be back out in the spring for landscaping and a few other items that require the weather to be above a certain temperature. Once we get closer to that time, we will post an update about those details.

Project Details

Riopelle is one of the busiest streets in the Eastern Market, lined with vehicles, businesses, murals, and market events. The goals of this project are to improve mobility, strengthen foot traffic for existing and new businesses, and create a shared street space for all modes of transportation.

The goal of a streetscape project is to achieve a beautiful corridor where neighborhood businesses can thrive and where people feel safe and welcomed. The improvements will better support all forms of transportation including walking, biking, riding transit and taking a car.
