What's Happening?

Safety improvements are coming to North Park Avenue between Maxwell Road and Howard Avenue. The project has two distinct components:

(1) First is to upgrade the painted crosswalk at the east leg of the Maxwell Road and North Park Avenue intersection to include a high-visibility pedestrian-activated crossing signal.

(2) Second is to upgrade the narrow asphalt shoulder on the east side of North Park Avenue to include a bike lane and sidewalk with curbs and gutters.





Why Is This Happening?

Taking action on improving the condition of North Park Avenue between Howard Avenue and Maxwell Road will address safety issues that exist on this section of the transportation network. The absence of sidewalks on the east side of North Park Avenue, and lack of a high-visibility crosswalk at the Maxwell Road/North Park Avenue intersection creates safety issues for people walking and biking, especially school children accessing Howard Elementary School and Collin Kelly Middle School.

This project will directly respond to the concerns of neighborhood residents and the students at Collin Kelly Middle School and Howard Elementary School who initiated a petition asking Lane County to improve the walking and biking experience at the North Park Avenue and Maxwell Road intersection.
