Historic Jordan, like many small towns, was faced with crumbling utilities beneath its downtown core. The need for infrastructure replacement created an opportunity to revitalize the business district. Working closely with local business owners and community members, the city and Bolton & Menk created a safe, walkable downtown compliant with modern ADA standards and with improved sightlines at intersections. Bump-out planting areas, wayfinding signage, and informational kiosks completed the downtown renovation.
To keep disruption to businesses at a minimum, a plan was developed to close three city blocks at once, rather than stage construction over a longer time frame. The project was completed within an astonishing eight-week construction window.
