Town Branch Commons in Lexington
Design: Scape

Town Branch is a long-forgotten creek in downtown Lexington – located by Vine Street, aka U.S. 25 – that was covered over with concrete in the 1930s as a flood control measure.

The creek will become the centerpiece of a 3.3-mile-long amalgam of pedestrian and bike trails, parks, and public spaces. The urban planning project by New York–based firm, Scape.

The Vine Street corridor is to be transfotrmed into a greenway with breathing room for pedestrians and bicyclists.

In places, return the waterway to the surface. Town Branch is the creek “upon whose banks Lexington was established in 1779,” according to a historical marker along the course of the invisible waterway. The text on the marker explains that merchandise once floated down the Ohio River and onto the creek, which also was home to a steamboat.
