The Portland Development Commission (PDC) and the Portland Department of Transportation (PDOT) are throwing a public party in north Portland tomorrow night to celebrate the completion of the first phase of their Vancouver-Williams Transportation Safety Project.
Completed in June, the first phase restriped ten new crosswalks and provided increased separation of cyclists in bike lanes and motorists at key intersections by restriping and re-aligning travel lanes.
Williams and Alberta.
The project was completed after an extensive community outreach effort. Funding came via tax increment proceeds as part of the PDC’s Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area.
In the next few years, expect to see six new curb extensions in the corridor.
If you have thoughts or questions about the project (or just want some free ice cream and cheap new helmet) come to Dawson Park (N. Stanton and Vancouver Ave.) tomorrow night from 5:30-7:30.
