Archibald Yell Boulevard severs the historical grid of streets located south and east of the downtown square; and the 4-lane, high-speed route is a barrier to pedestrians who want to move from neighborhoods south and east of Archibald Yell to destinations around the square and entertainment district. The goal of this project is to reduce or eliminate these pedestrian barriers and create a street that is safer for pedestrians and cyclists, while still providing adequate levels of service for vehicles.

Proposed changes will consist primarily of safety improvements to the intersection with College Avenue/ Rock Street, including pedestrian and lighting improvements, installation of a traffic signal at South Street, and pavement marking adjustments throughout the corridor. The plan also includes traffic analysis to confirm adequate traffic flow for a three-lane concept with single lanes in each direction and a central turn lane.

The purpose of this survey is to gather information about the current status of Archibald Yell Boulevard, and to gauge public opinion about the proposed improvements.
