HWC’s recommendations for the King Street corridor have resulted in over $20 million in private investment to date.
HWC provided design and construction services for this project in phases. The King Street corridor, previously SR 44 in Franklin, Indiana, is the primary gateway from I-65 into the City.
Improvements along the corridor function as a gradual gateway into Franklin with an emphasis on enhanced roadway elements, such as curbed and planted medians, reduced lane widths and other traffic-calming features. Portions of the project utilized INDOT federal aid funds.
Pedestrian improvements were added along the north and south sides of King Street to improve connectivity to the surrounding neighborhoods, schools and the Franklin Historic Trails system.
