39th Street Streetscape

Johnson & Associates was contracted by the City of Oklahoma City to conduct an assessment of the existing condition of the area and design a streetscape enhancement of OKC NW 39th Street District. An integral part of the streetscape design was community meetings with property owners, residents, City Staff business owners and other interested stakeholders. These meetings were intended to influence the design improvements. Upon completion of the assessment, J&A created three preliminary designs featuring elements discussed during the community meetings.

BOUNDARIES
NW 39th Street and NW 40th Street between N Pennsylvania Avenue and N Young Avenue.

OBJECTIVE
Provide a concept and design for this auto-centric area that is embracing the remnants of urban form and transitioning into a walkable neighborhood district.

NEED
A popular commercial district in OKC in need of transportation improvements that incorporate and encourage all modes of travel.

The team created a preliminary design report which captures the assessment of the area and conceptual designs. Final designs and engineering report are underway.

RESULTS
The streetscape is proposed to include a mill and overlay of the existing streets, bicycle sharrows, on-street parking, widened sidewalks and various other pedestrian enhancements. This project will be funded through a combination of the Better Streets Safer City funds and General Obligation Bond money. The project will be designed in accordance with City of Oklahoma City Standard Specifications and Standard details
