Conceptual Design and Streetscape Strategy of Pacific Avenue

Purpose of the project

The City of Brandon has initiated a project to implement an action item in The Downtown Brandon Secondary Plan to improve the connectivity of Pacific Avenue between 1st Street and 18th Street. During the project, the City of Brandon will be working with a consultant to undertake a conceptual design study and develop a streetscape strategy of the project area.

Pacific Avenue is designated by the City as an urban collector road and is an important east-west corridor with a current connection to 18th Street and future limited access connection with 1st Street. The long term vision for Pacific Avenue will include a continuous vehicular and multi-modal connection between 1st Street and 34th Street. This vision, along with continued development in Downtown Brandon, has resulted in concerns with the integration of vehicle traffic, on-street parking, and biking and walking connections through this corridor with existing intersections and proposed connections.

This study project will provide recommendations to address those concerns and on streetscape design for major intersections and road segments.
