East 7th Street Improvement Project

Revitalizing East 7th Street in Austin

This corridor improvements project included improvements in the right of way of East 7th Street between Chicon Street and Pleasant Valley Road to accentuate the corridor as a gateway into Austin and address pedestrian safety and right-of-way uses.  Improvements included:

  • Public art
  • Reconstruction of intersections
  • Lighting
  • Specialty pavement
  • Landscaping
  • Transit stops
  • Driveway consolidation
  • Access drive design and parking layout
  • Sidewalk design

This project was a collaborative effort of the stakeholder groups, numerous City of Austin departments, Capital Metro and TxDOT.

UDG designed custom curb ramps, pedestrian landings and medians.  Most major intersections incorporate colored pavers in intersections and crosswalk areas.  Intersections were reconstructed with utility upgrades and manhole adaption.
