The Southeast Strategy Update completed in 2021 outlined the project as a neighborhood corridor that would see future improvements. These include pedestrian safety, traffic calming, and aesthetic enhancements such as streetscape, lighting, neighborhood identity, and landscaping. The corridor serves multiple neighborhood assets, connecting residents to community spaces such as Weisser Park, Irwin Elementary School, the Oxford Community Center, the Euell A. Wilson Community Center, and the newest location for the Neighborhood Health Clinic.
