The goal of this project was to transform the surface area of a mile long, $60 million flood control project, constructed using 80’ to 100’ wide concrete conduits, into a hardscape path and landscaped park through the city to enhance commercial, retail, and residential development, and to provide a plaza with amenities for pedestrians. The project was completed in five (5) work areas/phases, with an overall budget of $40 million. Each of the five phases of the project enhanced a separate section of the linear park with different hardscaping, landscaping, and amenities. Hardscaping included colored concrete, brick and stone walking paths, and walls for terracing and accent features. Areas that did not receive hardscapes were covered with extensive landscaping. Amenities included waterfall and large-scale fountain features, bridges, signal controlled street crosswalks, and pedestrian benches. The entire pathway was constructed to meet current handicap accessibility codes.
