WHAT: Second public input meeting for the Shelby Farms Greenline western expansion project, which would expand the Greenline into Tobey Park.
Via a new bridge, this western extension will add about half of a mile to the Greenline and establish an important connection over an active railroad and the Poplar Avenue and Union Avenue viaducts. A federal transportation grant would cover 80 percent of the project’s cost.
We first invited the public to learn more about this project last October. At that meeting, we presented the project’s context and purpose, and asked for attendees to share their thoughts.
Since that first meeting, the project team has arrived at two design alternatives. We’ll present those alternatives on Thursday, and seek input on the bridge’s appearance and associated amenities.
WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 17, 6-8 p.m. (Open house format, with a brief presentation at 6:30)
WHERE: First Baptist Church-Broad, 2835 Broad Ave.
