Redesigning Coxe Avenue

Over the course of 4 days, Street Plans led the transformation of a .3-mile stretch of Coxe Avenue in Asheville, NC. The project team comprised of volunteers from Asheville on Bikes, the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club and the AARP.

The team created 6 new crosswalks, a .3-mile parking and barrier-protected multi-use path, and installed a 6,000 sq. ft. mural created by Sound Mind Creative to test pedestrian and bicycle safety solutions on the corridor. These changes focused on making public spaces more accesible, safe, and functional for al users. While this pilot project may last up to a year, it will inform the city’s ultimate redesign of Coxe Avenue in the short-term.
