The Ninth Street Pedestrian Mall, an innovative collaborative infrastructure project, spans Ninth Street from First to Third Avenues, and the Metrorail guideway from 8th to10th Streets. The main plaza is constructed of rustic terrazzo in vibrant oranges, yellows, blues and greens, punctuated with casual clusters of seating, whimsical light poles and commemorative bronze medallions celebrating the history and heritage of the Overtown Community. Concrete block pavers in a pattern inspired by African Kente textile weavings create a colorful rail plaza .
