the project

We are working in collaboration with the City of Memphis to develop an abandoned rail corridor in north Memphis into the city's next walking and bicycling trail. The City is committed to design and acquire the right-of-way. We need signage along the route.

Signage will:

Engage the public about the new trail . Residents will have an opportunity to have their voices heard about the new trail

Provide Cultural information. The area was once home to Isaac Hayes and numerous other musicians that atttended Manassas High School. The industrial base of the city was anchored by two large businesses

Guidance and directions - as Memphis gains a reputation as "bike friendly", morepeople wil travel along this route from Uptown area to north Midtown then onto Overtom Park and Shelby Farms. Access to the Wolf River Greenway will also be featured

Mile markers and health markers - great for tracking fitness goals.

the steps

We will work with the trail designers to build the image of the soon-to-be Chelsea Avenue Greenline. Signage will help to garner support for the project from the residents and businesses in the area. The signage will also beautify the area as well as provide navigation assistance through the area, including directions to the Wolf River Greenway. The first signage will be posted on the Wolf River Floodwall near the corner of Evergreen and Chelsea Avenue

why we're doing it

We want to insure that this addition to the Memphis walk/bike trail network will include a robust system of signage to enhance the development of the Chelsea Avenue Greenline as it moves toward completion.
