An Annual Pleasure
Every December I look forward to reviewing project presentations at the PSU/PBOT Traffic and Transportation class, and then publishing them here.
Another great crop of projects this year. Here are six of them. I will feature one special one in a few days!
- Alexis Grant wants to make rail crossings around the city safer for bikes (PDF, 778K)
- Bressa Culver proposes better lane markings to ease bike-auto conflicts at the eastern approach to the Broadway Bridge (PDF, 1.2M)
- Carter Cummings would help humanize 82nd Ave with bicycle connections (PDF, 1.4M)
- Donna Cohen would prioritize improvements to make N Fessenden safer for pedestrians and a little less welcoming to the trucks that are not supposed to be there (PDF, 1.6M)
- Dustin Posner is tackling a policy change with the Fire Bureau to expand the range of available traffic calming tools in his neighborhood (PDF, 635K) [Good news for Dustin, my fellow panelist, mayoral chief-of-staff Tom Miller, agreed to push the issue!]
- Roger Averbeck ponders the challenges to creating pedestrian infrastructure on SW Garden Home Rd (PDF, 3.7M)
Well done all around Another class of transportation activists ready to keep improving our City!

These sound like an interesting read, but none of the links appear to be working.

I can't access the links from my phone, but I love the idea of working on a set project in transportation for a year. I have done this in a shorter timeline. While none of these seem to be my expertise (bus lines) being a sophmore this could be me in 3 years, presenting bus ideas to the city council! Is there any way to do that now?

The links have been fixed - my apologies.
