The Lark Street Improvement Study aims to stimulate local economic growth and attract and retain residents, businesses, and visitors by developing design recommendations to:

  • Enhance and beautify the Lark streetscape
  • Support multiple modes of transportation
  • Improve parking access
  • Strengthen connections to Washington Park and downtown Albany
  • Create a strong sense of place

This study will develop strategic design recommendations for Lark Street, from Madison Avenue to Washington Avenue. Design standards will also be developed that will be applicable to surrounding areas in an effort to strengthen local connections and create a cohesive sense of place.

The study has been completed, engineering and construction will be overseen by the City of Albany Department of Engineering.
