Ensley Gateway Beautification Project

Ensley sign and gateway plazasA gateway beautification project is planned for the open parcel north of the intersection of N. Palafox Street and E. Johnson Avenue in the area that remained after the realignment of W. Detroit Boulevard and E. Johnson Avenue.

The proposed concept plan includes pedestrian walkways and seating walls that will provide a pleasant passive use park for neighborhood use and enjoyment. A plaza at the intersection is planned and it will provide access to the existing safe pedestrian crosswalks.

The site concept proposes landscaping with native trees and grasses along a bioswale/rain garden that will handle stormwater management in a low impact, natural, sustainable form.

A sidewalk along N. Palafox Street is proposed to connect the site to space for an ECAT transit stop.
