The Memphis and Shelby County Division of Planning and Development is working with consultants to propose improvements to Summer Avenue. This Corridor Study, which encompasses the 5.5 mile stretch of Summer Avenue from E. Parkway to I-240, will identify corridor needs, and opportunities to adapt Summer Avenue as it currently exists to a corridor reimagined and supportive of multimodal users. The planning team will team will transform data-driven insights and public engagement into concept designs that satisfy a wide range of safety, mobility, and community development goals.
To make this project successful and ensure it addresses the needs and concerns of the community, all residents, stakeholders, and users of Summer Avenue are invited to participate and follow along in the planning process.
