BROAD STREET MASTER PLAN

Gadsden, Alabama

General Description
The historic Broad Street business district began a significant step in revitalizing the downtown Gadsden area. SS&A was retained by the City of Gadsden to prepare a conceptual master plan for seven blocks of Broad Street. The master plan addressed concerns raised through public meetings and input from the City Planning and Engineering Department.

Features
Improvement to pedestrian and vehicular circulation, along with landscaping, seating, and street lighting helped were planned for a unique and unified streetscape for downtown. Mid-block crosswalks, end-block “bump-outs,” constricted driving lanes, and protected gathering spaces were all featured.
