Speak Now: Arcade and E 7th Redesigns and Reconstructions
31 May 2022
A special thanks to State Farm Insurance Good Neighbor Program for their support for outreach to businesses. We met 10 new minority ownerd businesses on Arcade and E 7th Street in this work. Construction of the road and sidewalk for the East 7th Street and Arcade Street project would start in Fall of 2024. During construction, access to businesses on East 7th Street and Arcade Street will be maintained. The project engineering and engagement staff will work with businesses to figure out how to keep businesses open during construction. We’ll be talking more about this as we know more about construction staging in 2023.
RIGHT NOW, your design comments are so helpful and welcome until June 15:
- Review the PowerPoint and take a look at the current proposal for your section.
- What do you think of the proposed design? Would that improvement make the street safer? Better for pedestrians, cars and bus riders trying to get to your business?
- What are your thoughts and suggestions for safety improvements at intersections like Arcade St./Case Ave. and Arcade St./Maryland Ave.?
- Share your thoughts with the project team here:

Other items businesses brought up:

- Will there be resources available to help my business weather construction?
- What creative things can we do to market together?
Just reply to Paris and let us know your interest in those kinds of topics and other things you’d like to talk with other businesses about.
