8th Street Smart Growth Revitalization Project
Phase I of the project includes undergrounding overhead utilities between National City Blvd & Highland Ave, and replacing the sewer between the 8th St Trolley Station & K Ave. Phase II will install traffic calming, pedestrian and streetscape enhancements between the 8th St Trolley Station and Highland Ave. This project is a logical extension of the National City Blvd Streetscape project. It will tie together the area’s previous urban core redevelopment efforts including the award-winning Southwestern College Education Village at National City Blvd and 8th St, a new Chamber of Commerce building, state-of-the-art public library, the renovation of historic Brick Row at A Ave & 9th St, along with several new mixed-use development projects.
