The Spiderweb is the first project being built as part of the City’s Heat Island Mitigation Program and is located at the intersection of Buena Vista Road, Brennan Road and St. Mary’s Road. This intersection is a very important East/West point of connection for people in South Columbus. This area currently presents a high grade of exposed urban surface which creates a negative impact to the community by elevating emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases, impairs air and water quality, and compromises human health as well.
The main goal in this project is to create a pleasing environment, filled with trees and seasonal landscaping which will bring benefits beyond the urban heat island. In addition, METRA will add two new bus shelters adding convenience access to the bus riders in the area.
This project is being constructed and funded through joint cooperation between the Columbus Consolidated Government Planning Department and the Air Quality Alliance of the Chattahoochee Valley, METRA, the Public Services Department, Trees Columbus, Inc., Outdoor Solutions, and McMath-Turner Construction Co. The project is under construction right now and it is estimated to be completed by the end of spring.
