HIgway 5 Interchange StudyThis study will be looking at potential redesign and reconstruction of the roadways at the intersection of Norfolk, West 7th Street, the Highway 5 bridge on and off ramps, Shepard Road, Edgecumbe, Gannon and the other roadways in the immediate area.

The ideal outcome would include: improved pedestrian conditions and access both along and across West 7th Street; a redesigned Shepard Road as a parkway-like facility; and a balance of traffic between Shepard Road and West 7th Street, creating a more connected community with better access to jobs, services, park facilities and the river.
