The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Chattanooga, Tennessee

Increasing enrollment encouraged the conversion of two former vehicular roads into pedestrian promenades on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus, just east of Chattanooga’s urban core. The new promenades aim to improve safety and connectivity featuring a wide central paved corridor, increased green space, tree canopy, and nodes for gathering. Bioretention is incorporated to reduce run-off in this combined sewer overflow section of the city while providing a learning opportunity outside the classroom.
