Planned roundabout at South Carson and Stewart Streets. Multi-lanes – so heads-up and pay attention folks….

The Carson City Board of Supervisors Thursday pushed a major project toward opening day of construction on South Street – making Carson Street more user friendly if not safer south of the main downtown. The first major addition will be a roundabout where Stewart Street intersects with South Carson at the south end of the Carson Mall. It’ll be a multi-lane roundabout which will, for some, take getting used to. South of the roundabout there will be road improvements so that bicycles and pedestrians will be treated a bit more nicely if not more safely. The entire south end of South Carson Street will enjoy bike lanes and sidewalk improvements funded in part with federal funds. The project starts in February and will run through the end of 2020.

Children’s Museum signs coming down – to be replaced with attractive LED sign.

The Supervisors also decided to make some improvements to the Children’s museum just north of the the downtown area. They’re taking down the old Children’s Museum signs and replacing them with a single bright LED sign that will be bright in the daytime so it can be seen but then dimmed at night so the sign doesn’t blind drivers passing by.  The new sign should be installed pretty soon.

McFadden Square might get some improvements – Shade structures and/or trees.  Summer sun is pretty hot at 4,500 feet elevation and so upgrades are on the horizon thanks to city redevelopment funds.

3rd Street parking area will get a do-over possibly to accommodate occasional special events….but the old parking lot needs renovating including tree removals to stop breaking up the paving.   Nothing on the drawing board yet. But it’s coming.

The Brewery Arts Center will be contacted to ascertain if their facility might be interested in accommodating additional outside special events sponsored by the city.  The Supervisors agreed to hire a consulting/design firm to size up three locations – McFadden Square, 3rd Street Parking Lot and the BAC – to determine how to keep the special events in the downtown area to feed the economy down there. The supervisors made it clear they want to take the issue slowly to make sure they make the right decisions.
