OSU, Stillwater Officials Develop Plan To Connect Campus To Downtown

Although a timeline isn't in place yet, officials with Oklahoma State University and the city of Stillwater say a plan to connect the campus to downtown could benefit both parties.

University and city planners worked together recently on a plan they hope will guide development southeast of campus. One of the highlights is a pedestrian corridor running from OSU to the downtown area.

The corridor would offer multiple routes downtown. Two legs would run from the southern end of campus south to 4th Avenue, then east on 4th Avenue to Husband Street and south to downtown on 7th Avenue. Another route would run a few blocks east of campus, following Husband Street from Hall of Fame Avenue to 7th Avenue.

Sidewalks along the route would be widened to allow for pedestrians and cyclists to use the corridor together. The route would include amenities such as trees, bicycle racks and benches.
