Oakley Main Street Realignment

Location: Oakley


PGAdesign studied several street typologies for this main street realignment.  The selected design incorporated rain gardens, bike paths, special paving along the retail strip, custom rammed earth seatwalls, and other seating opportunities.

The project’s goal was to be an economic stimulus to the downtown by converting a mainstreet (former Route 4) from a wide vehicle dominated strip to a more cloistered and walkable main street.  The initial vision drawings of the project spurred investment.

The project was completed in 2013, several formerly empty store fronts are now occupied with new shops and services (taqueria, cupcake bakery, sports store).   Landowners of adjacent properties have begun to rebuild their store fronts to attract tenants.
