Vancouver-Williams Share the Road Celebration

Posted by on July 24th, 2007 at 3:21 pm

The Portland Office of Transportation and the Portland Development Commission are joining forces to hold a Share the Road celebration at Dawson Park!

The event will celebrate the bike and ped projects already completed as part of Phase One along the corridor, as well as letting folks know what they can expect to see happen ped and bike-wise in upcoming Phases Two and Three.

Vancouver-Williams Share the Road celebration
Wednesday, July 25 2007
5:30 – 7:30pm
Dawson Park, N Vancouver & Stanton St (cute gazebo park near Legacy Emanuel) – northwest corner
Coincides with Summer Concerts in the Park event

Why not stop by on your bike ride commute home along Williams after work? We’ll have –

* free ice-cream for the first 400 folks!
* free neighborhood bike & walk maps & other options materials!
* free “I Share the Road” stickers for bikes & cars!
* bike helmet booth, fitted by Legacy Emanuel Trauma Nurses Talk Tough staff & volunteers. Helmets will be for both adults & kids, and will sell for an incredible five dollars!

PDOT staff, including the project engineers, will be on hand to hear your thoughts and answer your transportation questions about the Vancouver-Williams corridor; give information on what’s next in the pipeline to help improve conditions yet further for pedestrians & bicyclists; and get your feedback on speed in the corridor. We’ll have speed surveys for Vancouver-Williams available, as well as the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s North/Northeast bike boulevard surveys, so you can give vital bicyclist feedback whilst you munch on that ice-cream!

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan
