History

Leavenworth Road has always been a major east-west thoroughfare for our community. Without Leavenworth Road and its history, the neighborhoods and businesses along Leavenworth Road wouldn’t exist as we know them today.

Since the inception of Leavenworth Road, there has been an ongoing conversation about the need to make it safer and more efficient for wagons, carriages, and then vehicles. Now, we are reinvesting in the modernization of this roadway to not only make it safer and more efficient for vehicles, but also more walkable for the residents of these historic communities along Leavenworth Road.
