This project rehabilitates Jeanne d'Arc Street, a major thoroughfare connecting Bliss Street to Hamra Street, to make it accessible and pedestrian-friendly. As a joint effort of the Beirut Municipality, the AUB Neighborhood Initiative and the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service, the project brought together residents and businesses on Jeanne d'Arc, urban designers, and accessibility advocates to design a model street for the city of Beirut.
