38th & Chicago Re-envisioned
Public Works staff plan to reconstruct the intersection of 38th & Chicago.
In 2022, we began a process to engage with the community. Through this process, we intend to re-envision and redesign the area in a way that reflects community needs. We recognize that there is a strong desire an intentional, robust, and honest community engagement process. This is a significant opportunity for us all to define the future of 38th & Chicago.
In 2020, George Perry Floyd Jr. was murdered at 38th & Chicago, forever changing the intersection and surrounding community. This area is known as George Perry Floyd Square (GFS), and it has evolved beyond its original roadway design.
