City Walk is a community developed planning vision for the City of Providence with the ultimate goal to provide connection between its different neighborhoods enhancing the infrastructure that allows pedestrians and bicyclists to travel within the City. The project was adopted by the City of Providence Planning Department, who is dedicating staff and funding to bring this planning document to realization. Under this contract, McMahon is part of the team that is developing Phases I and II. Phase I includes Clifford Street between Richmond Street and West Franklin Street, as well as Friendship Street and Pine Street between Broad Street and West Franklin Street. The limits of Phase II include Broad Street between Elmwood Avenue to the north and Hawthorne Avenue to the south which serves as one of the entrances to the Roger Williams Park. Phases I and II are expected to provide improvements to the existing pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure to connect the South Elmwood, Washington Park, Elmwood, Lower and Upper South Providence, West End, and Jewelry District. Also, Broad Street includes a significant proportion of traditionally underserved population.
McMahon is proud to collaborate with the City of Providence to demonstrate how City Walk can improve life on Broad Street with direct input from the community
