The streetscape extends along NW 16 from Classen Blvd. to Pennsylvania. A revived 16th Street Plaza will be its centerpiece.
The streetscape project includes street resurfacing, new sidewalks and curbs, landscaping and decorative paving in the commercial Plaza District at a cost of $2.75 million.
Raised planters provide a backdrop for identification signage and help soften intersections with landscaping in the Plaza District.
An entrance marker at 16th and Classen helps identify the area and draw people into the Plaza District.
Additional lighting, and a new traffic signal at 16th and Indiana help illuminate the street and improve safety.
The Streetscape is designed to complement a general business and economic revival under way in one of the City's oldest shopping and commercial areas.
Shops and businesses began opening on 16th Street Plaza in the 1930s, including the landmark Plaza Cinema Theatre.
The Plaza was one of five Oklahoma City theaters designed by the Kansas City firm of Boller Brothers. The others were the Harber, Ritz, State and the Centre, which was incorporated into the Oklahoma City Art Museum .
The Plaza, now owned by Oklahoma City's Lyric Theatre , has been converted into a stage theatre for its musical theatre academy and other small Lyric shows.
