Franklin Boulevard, with its wide lanes and fast-moving vehicles, can be uninviting, unsafe and an uncomfortable street. For people who walk, bike or ride the bus, Franklin Boulevard can be a significant barrier to getting from place to place.

Fortunately, the future of Franklin Boulevard is brighter. The Franklin Boulevard Transformation project will encourage new ways for businesses and neighborhoods near Franklin Boulevard to redevelop the street into a more comfortable connector of places, rather than a divider.

A design team, following a four day workshop, created three corridor alternatives for what Franklin Boulevard could look like. The team shared those concept designs during an open house in May.

The information collected from the latest round of public engagement will help shape the final recommendations for how to design and implement a transformed Franklin Boulevard.
