From 1999 to 2001, Eric Myers contributed preliminary designs and urban design consultation for the building of several streets in downtown Chattanooga. The work involved consultation with the City of Chattanooga Public Works Department and several engineering consultants. Myers contributed design led strategies for more than $15 million in streetscape investments over a three-year period.
Fourth Street Boulevard was transformed from a one-way bisector of downtown to a tree-lined boulevard. Myers provided the initial design concept for the street layout and urban framework. Public Works used this work to inform consulting engineers as to the goals of the project.
Market Street was studied with the goal of providing on-street parking and adding enhancements to the pedestrian areas. Myers again coordinated with traffic engineers, CARTA and several other Public Works officials to create a conceptual plan that was used to guide engineering work.
Myers contributed this work as the Urban Design Coordinator for The River City Company
