UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio – A project to make over the main street in Upper Arlington, Ohio is complete. The new and improved Tremont Road was revealed at a ribbon cutting held on July 28, 2016.
This inviting, multi-modal corridor was completed in time to welcome visitors to the U.S. Golf Association’s 2016 U.S. Senior Open Championship that is being held in Upper Arlington in August.
B&N designed the Tremont Road improvement project, which is the largest capital improvement project in the City’s history and the first project to apply the City’s new Complete Streets Policy. From the onset, the emphasis was to design a welcoming and revamped corridor that provides better access for all users – motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. The project was designed to:
- Enhance safety
- Improve the roadway and multiple intersections
- Provide better facilities for pedestrians and bicyclists
- Improve connections to community resources
- Enhance the streetscape and corridor aesthetics
The project included road diet and complete street concepts, tree lawns, and a mini roundabout to help improve safety and pedestrian access. Read more about B&N’s award-winning Tremont Road project.
