TRAFFIC CALMING & CONNECTIVITY PLAN - FINAL July 2017

COVINGTON TRAFFIC CALMING & CONNECTIVITY PLAN 

The City of Covington's historic downtown district is a charming hub for commerce, arts, and community events for residents and visitors alike.  While the area is already a destination and gathering place, a lack of comfort and connectivity for people walking, people riding bicycles and other non-motorized users prevents people from experiencing its full potential.  Boston Street is Covington's "Main Street," yet the state highway is a barrier that splits the town in half.  Several initiatives are underway to improve transportation and recreation options downtown, including bike paths, road markings, street furnishings, and park planning.  

The attached Traffic Calming and Connectivity Plan was prepared by the Center for Planning Excellence (CPEX) and created with the input of residents, business owners, community groups, and the city, and the recommendations are based on their vision.  This plan is intended to link the city's current and past efforts together, clarify what other efforts are needed, and strengthen the case for obtaining funding for these efforts.

This Traffic Calming and Connectivity Plan is an initiative of the City of Covington, with support from the Northshore Area Board of Realtors.
