After gathering public input on the two options proposed for the reconfiguration of Frazier Avenue, the City of Chattanooga has revealed its plans to create a protected multi-modal lane on the NorthShore street.

The modified version of “Option B” will aim to accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, and wheelchair users along Frazier Avenue with safer sidewalks, striped bump-outs, and buffer zones. The plan also calls for a new mid-block crosswalk at the CARTA parking garage at 345 Frazier Ave.

Note: The city plans to implement the redesign in late spring.

“Whether it’s dining, shopping, or having fun, there’s something for everyone on Frazier, " said Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly. “So it’s fitting that the new protected lane on Frazier will provide space for everyone who isn’t in a car to more easily and safely enjoy everything Frazier has to offer, while moving automotive traffic through the area smoothly.”
