Union Avenue could be vastly different in the years ahead, as the city is planning to revamp the street through the Union Avenue Complete Streets Project.

The street will undergo a multi-phase “major reconstruction,” according to the city’s Bikeway and Pedestrian program’s Facebook.

Beginning with the segment of Union from Marshall Avenue to Manassas Street in the Medical District, the street will get improvements like street beautification, enhanced transit stops, heightened safety for pedestrians and cyclists, modernized traffic signals, and eco-friendly solutions to stormwater runoff.

City officials spearheading the project, as well as a team of design consultants will present the plans for the first segment in detail and seek feedback at a public meeting on Tuesday, January 8th. The meeting is slated for 6 p.m. at High Cotton Brewing Co.

A social hour sponsored by the Memphis Medical District Collaborative will follow. Attendees of the meeting will receive a complimentary drink ticket.
