As part of their proactive effort to increase civility on crowded multi-use paths (like the Esplanade, Waterfront, and Hawthorne Bridge), PDOT has produced a new “Share the Path” brochure.
The brochure has a decidedly non-PDOT look thanks to two students from the Art Institute of Portland who donated their graphic design skills to the project.
Aspiring designers Robb Sturtcman and JP Devries worked with Greg Raisman from PDOT traffic safety and Janis McDonald from the Transportation Options division to create the attractive piece.
Here’s an excerpt from the text on the front of the brochure:
“We’ve put together this brochure to help make sure that walking, bicycling, skating and strolling is fun and safe for everyone. We all know it’s important to share the road – but it’s just as important to share the path…As Dr. Seuss reminds us, “Look at me now, it’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how!””
Funding came from Portland Parks and Recreation and a Safe Communities Grant from PDOT. On July 19th, PDOT will host a special, “I Share the Multi-use Path” field trip event and ride as part of their monthly Bicycle Brown Bag discussion series.
Watch for the brochures at upcoming community events.
