Mill Street Viaduct
|Client:||City of Jackson|
The Mill Street Viaduct Improvement Projects is a renovation of the area near the recently completed Union Depot. The central feature is the Union Market building with fits under the existing railroad bridge on the south side of Capitol Street. Outside of the Union Market will be a plaza and clock tower.
The project spans three city blocks that straddle the railroad on the west edge of the CBD. The Union Market will be created under the Capitol Street Viaduct with a new slab, ventilation, roll up doors, metal ceiling, lighting, fountains, and a clock tower. The four viaducts (overhead train bridges) will be cosmetically enhance with brick veneer, metal ceilings, and lighting. The east railroad embankment between Pascagoula and Pearl Streets is to be shored up and landscaped to create a sculpture plaza with modular retaining walls. The sidewalks in the area will be replaced with precast pavers, or concrete, and added street lighting, landscaping, and storm drainage.
