CCC to mull Broad Street road diet, budget Tuesday
A rendering of what the Broad and DeKalb intersection would look like, facing south, after completion of a Broad Street road diet. It would reduce Broad Street between DeKalb and York streets to two lanes, but create dedicated right and left turn lanes at the DeKalb Street intersection. There would also be decorative medians, wider sidewalks and more parking spaces to make downtown Camden more pedestrian-friendly. Camden City Council will consider a resolution Tuesday seeking TIGER II federal grant funding for the project. - photo by Provided by the city of Camden
Camden City Council will consider two funding items during its meeting Tuesday night at Camden City Hall. These include first reading of the Fiscal Year 2015-16 budget and a resolution authorizing staff to seek TIGER II federal grant funds for a proposed Broad Street “road diet,” a project aimed at making downtown Camden more attractive, inviting and pedestrian friendly. The TIGER II resolution does not commit the city to providing funds for the road diet but provides staff with council’s approval to seek grant funds for the project, according to City Manager Mel Pearson.
