The 18th Street beautification / streetscape project is not an APPLE project (APPLE projects are only feasibility studies and are not construction projects). The “18th Street Streetscape project” is a 0.40-mile beautification project that will involve the addition of landscaping, sidewalks, crosswalks, and on-street parking along 18th Street between 28th Avenue South and the Homewood / Birmingham city limits (south of Valley Avenue), a total distance of approximately 2,000 feet. According to the Birmingham Metropolitan Planning Organization's TIP (or Transportation Improvement Program), the project has a total cost of $1,500,000. This is a Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) funded project, and is currently in the right-of-way acquisition phase. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2018.
