Phase 1 of the Ardmore East Main Streetscape is constructed along the downtown Main Street from Washington Street to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad crossing and on the intersecting Caddo Street running north and south. The streetscape design consists of creating a master plan that provides an overall design concept for the historic district in downtown Ardmore. Traffic calming and creating a revitalized shopping district are key components to the design while also incorporating theming from the nearby railroad and historic depot. A landscaped median has been added down the middle of Main Street with a round about at the intersection with Caddo to slow the traffic down while keeping it moving. A colored concrete intersection with decorative paver crosswalks clearly identifies the pedestrian crossing areas. The diagonal parking has been reconfigured to introduce back-in parking for safe and convenient shopping and higher visibility when pulling into traffic. Landscaped, extended curbs at all intersections promote more pervious area in the downtown and safer pedestrian crossings. A six-foot band of pavers with street trees for shade has been incorporated behind the curb along the shop frontages with benches for seating, trash receptacles and decorative bike racks with the Ardmore logo. Black fluted acorn lights line the sidewalks at the back of curb and a programable color-changing light surrounds the roundabout curb line in a cast iron curb to highlight the intersection. Low impact storm water infiltration was incorporated into the design of Caddo Street. Permeable pavers at the intersection at Paradise Alley and tree wells that collect water from the street gutters allow water to be filtered and to flow back into the soil below newly planted cypress trees.
