THE PROJECT

Purpose

The City of Chattanooga is seeking to transform the 3rd and 4th Street corridor (from Lindsay Street to Hampton Street), including the connection to Riverfront Parkway, into an aesthetically pleasing, safe, and accessible facility that reconnects and extends the downtown grid. The new connections to the existing neighborhoods, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Chattanooga School for the Arts & Sciences, as well as Siskin and Erlanger hospitals are intended to encourage economic development and provide an enhanced connection among the community assets. More direct connections to the Riverwalk, and improved vehicular, transit, pedestrian, and bicycle amenities will all be explored as part of the project.
