This new design features raised cycle lanes, which is popular in Europe. That means there is a three-foot buffer from the curb to keep pedestrians and cyclists safe.

There are also raised intersections and green infrastructure.

Other work underway at Hazelwood Green includes construction of the public plaza, which is scheduled for completion in the summer.
