82nd Ave Safety Open Houses Start Tonight

From PDOT:

COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPEN HOUSES – SAVE THE DATE!

82ND AVENUE OF ROSES HIGH CRASH CORRIDOR SAFETY PROJECT

Over the next year the Portland Office of Transportation (PDOT) and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) will be working together to improve traffic and transportation safety along the 82nd Avenue of Roses corridor. We’ll be holding three Open Houses in order to help us identify ways to reduce crashes and fatalities, and to improve overall traffic safety for motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists – and we want to hear your thoughts!

We’re inviting local residents, neighborhood associations, district coalitions, neighborhood offices, business associations, land use, planning and advocacy groups, as well as other interested individuals to come and find out more about traffic safety on the 82nd Avenue of Roses. Attendees will be able to offer thoughts and ideas to us, share concerns regarding transportation safety on 82nd Avenue of Roses, and provide feedback on what changes they’d like to see implemented in our Safety Project. The project aims to make 82nd Avenue of Roses safer and more accessible for everybody using the corridor – on foot, by bike, by bus or by car.
