description  
Recognizing that St. Claude has been neglected as a street, this project proposes a redesign of the existing transit networks and paths in the area. The plan includes widening the sidewalks, adding bike lanes, reducing on-street parking, and adding benches for pedestrian use. In an effort to reconnect the Upper Ninth Ward with the rest of the city through a redevelopment of existing transportation arteries and new transportation alternatives, the plan aims to increase options for mobility through a rehabilitation of the neutral ground. Open spaces, which cluster around existing institutions such as the Bywater Hospital and local schools, are also key components of the scheme. The strategic addition of mixed-use structures to the existing neighborhood invigorates the local economy and ignites a new sense of community.
