Dexter Avenue Streetscape Improvements
Status: Completed 2014
GMC provided professional planning and design services for streetscape improvements to Dexter Avenue. The goal of these improvements is to return Dexter Avenue, one of the most historic streets in recent history to its 19th Century character when it was a bustling pedestrian zone for commerce and entertainment. Projects have included the redesign of the intersection at Commerce Street and Dexter Avenue and reinstallation of the iconic fountain as the center of a new roundabout which also reopened Court Street to traffic - reconnecting an important link between Dexter Avenue, Commerce Street and Court Street. GMC also led a team of 10 consultants to plan and design a park in front of the State Capitol and establish the Dexter Avenue Streetscape environment. Improvements to Dexter Avenue will reestablish this area as the heart of downtown Montgomery with new life that is more friendly to pedestrians and businesses. New trees will be planted to provide shade and enhance the scale of the avenue.
