Construction on the Hampline has begun! Some of us in Memphis have waited nearly nine years for this day to arrive. As of this morning, crews are at work on Broad Ave. Please visit the project page for more details.
All businesses along Broad Ave. will remain open during construction. Most on-street parking will remain available as well. Please continue your patronage of these fine local businesses, and bear with us over the next few months as we improve Broad Ave.
The Hampline project is finally reaching construction!
This week we held two community meetings to inform the public and stakeholders on the project’s anticipated construction schedule. At the present, construction is scheduled to begin in early March 2019, weather pending. Anticipated completion is late fall 2019. Work will begin on the west side of Broad Ave. and continue east.
See that new tab at the top? Because of this project’s high level of interest from the public, we have created a page on the blog dedicated solely on the Hampline’s construction progress. Visit the page to download the presentation slides from this week’s meetings, sign up for regular email updates, and stay informed on progress.
Even before construction, the Hampline has received national and international recognition. We can’t image the attention it will bring to Memphis and Binghampton once built. Here’s hoping for for dry spring and summer!
