As part of our Better Bridges work adding to the Fairview Avenue project, Friendly Streets worked with Kyle Waites of We Lighting LLC on a temporary pilot installation of creative lighting in the Fairview Avenue underpass beneath I-94. The installation is running until January 11th 2016 and is located in the pedestrian area on the western side. We unveiled and celebrated the lights at our 2nd Fairview Underpass Party October 24th.
Now we want to hear from you! Have you visited the lighting display, either during the party or at another time? Please click here to take our online survey. (Update: Survey has now closed, thanks!) Your feedback will help Friendly Streets, Union Park District Council, the City of St. Paul and the Minnesota Department of Transportation, to evaluate this pilot project. Results from this combined with the larger Fairview Avenue project report will help neighborhood and city leaders decide whether to pursue options for a more complete, permanent creative lighting on both sidewalk areas someday in the future.
