We’ve told you previously about the restriping plans to make Washington Avenue a safer street for all types of commuters.
Since initially telling you about these plans, progress has been halted by some opposition. Now a meeting is being held with the Streets Department, Planning Commission and the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities to discuss how to improve this ever-changing street and help to create a new restriping proposal.
We recently told you about plenty of changes happening on Washington Avenue, ranging from a new mixed-use development proposed for 9th and Washington to the Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken opening at 20th and Washington. As the businesses and structure of the street changes, so should the street itself.
Previously plans for restriping were expected to begin in 2015, with changes to the car lanes, bike lanes, parking and more to help improve the overall visibility and safety on the street. You can read more about the previous proposal here.
If you’d like to see this street improved, come out and give your opinions on how Washington Avenue can become a safer place for everyone at this upcoming meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to help develop a new restriping proposal for this highly frequented road.
The meeting is being held at the Rock School for Dance Education at Broad and Washington. It will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 3.
