CLINTON STREET BICYCLE BOULEVARD ENHANCEMENT PROJECT OPEN HOUSE

Where:
St Philip Neri Parish Church – Carvlin Hall

2408 SE 16th Avenue – near SE 18th & Division

About the Open House…
Drop by to learn more about this new PDOT enhanced traffic safety markings and signage project planned for the city’s Clinton Street Bicycle Boulevard! Find out more about the project; meet the recently selected project artist team of Matt Cartwright and Brian Borrello; and come prepared with your ideas for what any new markings, signage et al we install on Clinton St might look like. We will have lots of paper, crayons, gluesticks, and other fun stuff available!!

What is the Clinton Street Bike Boulevard Enhancement Project?
The project will aim to let all users of the corridor know that they are on a street prioritized for use by cyclists and, by association, other non-motorized users. PDOT hopes to use creative communicative design and art features, such as bold street signage and on-street markings, to communicate the message that the street is a bicycle boulevard to all users of the street – cyclists, pedestrians, and particularly motorists.

    What they need is a diversion at 17th. Then Clinton would be perfect. There are way too many drivers who just haul ass all the way down Clinton to avoid traffic on Division.
