On this year’s list? Des Moines.</p><p>The project will focus on revitalizing the 6<sup>th</sup> Avenue Corridor in downtown Des Moines.&nbsp; The idea is to make the corridor friendlier to pedestrians, with wider sidewalks, improved lightning and larger bus stop shelters.</p> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 13:16:06 +0000 Sandhya Dirks 11855 at http://iowapublicradio.org Des Moines street chosen for EPA partnership
