Lovington Central Plaza and Main Street Streetscape

Location: Lovington, New Mexico

Project Info: Streetscape improvements, Design and Planning of future improvements.

Completed: 2014

Project Description:

Following a New Mexico Main Street project, LGA was engaged to implement streetscape design improvements for a six block area surrounding the county courthouse.

The design solution included a wider sidewalk along the commercial side (south side) of main street to augment commercial activity, pop-out areas at the corners of the block to provide a shorter pedestrian path across the streets and to differentiate the area from the adjoining arterial traffic, and landscape improvements to provide street trees, irrigation systems and street furniture. A gateway element onto the street was designed as well as a pocket park with toilet facilities, small intimate plaza, and landscape improvements.
