Main Street to Main Street Multimodal Connector (Memphis, TN)
The Main to Main Multi-Modal Connector Project is funded in part by a grant under the NATIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS DISCRETIONARY GRANT PROGRAM (TIGER IV DISCRETIONARY GRANTS). This first-ever TIGER-funded project in the City of Memphis will establish a twelve mile regional multimodal corridor between Main Street in Memphis and Main Street in West Memphis, Arkansas via the historic Harahan Bridge over the Mississippi River.
This project will increase and improve alternative transportation options in the Memphis metro area by providing a bike and pedestrian route between the two cities. The project was divided into three major segments, consisting of the Memphis segment, the Harahan Bridge segment, and the Arkansas segment. The team of PHD, SSR, LRK and Alta was selected for the Memphis segment of the project.
Our team is currently providing design services to improve pedestrian, bicycle and ADA access along Main Street from Henry Avenue south to Carolina Avenue, along with multiple other streets in downtown Memphis to complete the connection to the Harahan Bridge. Design will address much-needed improvements within the public right of way throughout the project, including drainage, access, aesthetics and deferred maintenance.
