18th Street South Realignment Rendering

This project will be phased to accommodate future development along 18th Street South. The first phase of the realignment will change the location of the north side of 18th Street west of the mid-block loading dock to accommodate a wider sidewalk and on-street uses detailed below.

The streetscape on the south side of 18th Street South will be replaced and upgraded as part of a private development.

The final phase will complete the north side realignment and will be coordinated with future development.
