West Palm Beach’s Clematis Streetscape Project Completes First Phase

Downtown West Palm Beach continues to grow and improve, including the historic Clematis Street and the city's Clematis Streetscape project, which has completed its first phase, with the street reopening to traffic on Nov. 2

The first phase of the project took over the 300th block of Clematis Street between South Dixie Highway and South Olive Avenue.

The project is updating Clematis Street with modern infrastructure and vibrant design elements, with a focus on pedestrians.

Highlights include a curbless street that prioritizes the pedestrian; narrower traffic lanes to slow cars’ speed; high-visibility crosswalks and mid-block crossings; shade trees; wider sidewalks; and reduced parking spaces to make room for “people space.”

Phase two of Clematis Streetscape is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2019, and will redesign additional blocks on Clematis Street.
