The project was approved by City Council during the April 16, meeting, and is now in the right of way and easement acquisition phase.
The purpose of the Oberlin Road Streetscape Project is to improve the street from Groveland Avenue to the north of Bedford Avenue, with wider sidewalks, revised traffic lanes and bus stops, and landscaping. Some public water and sanitary sewer mains will also be replaced or added.
The Oberlin Road Project is part of the Cameron Village & Hillsborough Street Small Area Plan that was approved by City Council in Feb. 2018. The plan highlights the need to better integrate pedestrian, bike, auto, and transit use into a well-landscaped and attractive streetscape that serves people of all abilities.
The proposed project includes:
- Installation of improved sidewalks;
- Improved pedestrian crossings;
- Extend sidewalks up Stafford Avenue, Everett Avenue and Bedford Avenue;
- Bike lanes;
- Street trees;
- Street lighting;
- Street benches and bike racks; and,
- Replace sections of old water and sanitary sewer mains.

The Wade/Oberlin Small Area Plan of the 2030 Comprehensive Plan recognized Oberlin Road as the “main street” of the area emphasizing the need to more fully integrate pedestrian, bike, auto, and transit uses into a well-landscaped and attractive streetscape that serves people of all abilities.
The Oberlin Road Streetscape Plan was adopted by City Council on January 6, 2015. The plan focuses on improving the sidewalk environment.
