The intersection of 2nd and Laurel is a critical one for our corridor. It is in many ways a dividing line. This plan seeks to address pedestrian and vehicular conflict while establishing a new public space for all to enjoy.
The NLBID engaged PORT Urbanism to lead a three-part community engagement process and work closely with City departments to develop a layout that addressed pedestrian crossings, signalization, and a much-needed tree canopy.
Kieran Timberlake and PORT Urbanism prepared this visionary plan for what is possible along North 2nd St and Spring Garden. With the goal of creating more public gathering space, improving traffic flows, and reclaiming the public right of way, this plan sets forth three key areas for projects: Laurel Park, Market Green, and the Spring Garden Gateway.
