Pacific Avenue Streetscape 30% Design Completed
AHBL, Inc., selected by City of Tacoma in January 2010 as the prime consultant on the Pacific Avenue Streetscape, has completed the project's preliminary design. This significant design milestone comes as an additional boon to our recent local involvement, along with renewal of a seven-year Joint Base Lewis-McChord Civil/Environmental IDIQ and the State of Washington's Civil Engineering on-call contract.
The Pacific Avenue schematic reflects the project's ultimate goal of creating a comprehensive downtown streetscape that will promote public events, revitalize businesses, and create a more inviting street for all users.
"We see ourselves as stakeholders. We will live and work in Tacoma and will see the results every day," Doreen Gavin, civil engineering principal at AHBL, said of the project. "What really excites us about the Pacific Avenue streetscape project is that we will be part of a bigger and ongoing effort in the city to create Pacific Avenue as 'The Address' for the Downtown core."
The Pacific Avenue Streetscape construction is scheduled for next year.
