The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) initiated the Fulton Market Streetscape project in 2013 to improve safety, upgrade infrastructure, and provide enhancements in response to this development while respecting the historic character of the area. Over the past year, CDOT has been developing the design for Section 2, Carpenter Street to Ogden Avenue, as an extension of Section 1, Halsted Street to Carpenter Street. The project team held over fourteen individual meetings with property owners and developers, two task force meetings, and two public meetings. The final streetscape design is a result of input provided at these meetings and comments made by reviewing agencies.
