The City of Clemson has been working with the design firm Alta to develop a long-range plan for the College Avenue corridor from Highway 93 to Highway 123. The study began in August of 2017 and has included four public input sessions and a public design charrette. The study looked into issues such as the potential removal of on-street parking (provided the City can build a new parking deck), increasing sidewalk widths, promoting safe bicycle traffic, promoting public transit, addressing private vehicular traffic and cut-through traffic, improving the streetscape planting, lighting and signage, increasing pedestrian safety, the creation of pedestrian plazas, and possibly adding public green/park space.
A final presentation was held on Thursday, February 15th.
