Indiana University Jordan Avenue Pedestrian ImprovementsBloomington, Indiana

Browning Day was commissioned to redesign the Jordan Avenue corridor on the campus of Indiana University to improve pedestrian safety and enhance aesthetics. The roadway was converted into a tree-lined and medianed boulevard, with identified bicycle lanes and bus pull-offs, creating a refuge for pedestrians and bicycle traffic.

Another benefit of the new pathway is the improved pedestrian circulation from the residence hall on the east side of Jordan Avenue through and between the Musical Arts Center, Simon Music Library and Recital Hall to the west.

In addition to improving safety, the team designed a formal Arts Gateway to campus, initiated by the recently completed Jacob School of Music East Studio Building, the doorway to the university’s music, fine and performing arts district.
