Veterans Memorial Boulevard - A Complete Streets Project
Connecting Veterans to the Community
Proposed Veterans Memorial Boulevard improvements in the Temple Medical and Education District.
The Veterans Memorial Boulevard project, was submitted for consideration of funding from the US Department of Transportation under the Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The proposed project will fill a critical gap in a community wide multi-modal system, by reconstructing Veterans Memorial Boulevard as a Complete Street. The project will increase access to community resources for vulnerable populations, including Veterans, through the provision of a four-lane roadway with a landscaped median, new shared-use pathways, improved bus stop provisions and innovatively addressing stormwater runoff issues, in the growing Temple Medical and Education District.
