Walnut Plaza is a bustling avenue on the UE campus and a thoroughfare for the city. Improvements to this streetscape include aesthetic enhancements as well as increased safety for its considerable pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
The Walnut Plaza project will enhance the beauty of the UE campus with new monuments, walkways, signage, and green space. Additionally, the project will implement Americans with Disabilities Act improvements between Rotherwood and Weinbach Avenues synchronously increasing both pedestrian and vehicular safety. The Walnut Plaza project will provide a safer walkway for students, employees, and neighborhood residence fostering a safe and close-knit campus community.
