About the Project

Improvements to Wilson Boulevard were identified in the Virginia Square Sector Plan, adopted by the County Board in 2002.

Between 2009 and 2019 the County completed three previous phases (North Quincy Street to North Kenmore Street) of the Wilson Boulevard Improvements project.

Project elements for all phases include:

  • New curb and gutter
  • ADA-compliant sidewalks
  • Traffic signal improvements
  • Carlyle-style streetlights
  • Street trees
  • Storm sewer upgrades/improvements
  • New asphalt paving, signing and markings

Phase III East

The project’s final east phase is in the early design phase. It entails a utility undergrounding project that will bury utility lines in this area. Design work will be completed upon procurement of easements in the project area, which will make way subsequent phases of the project.
