The purpose of the Halsey Safety Project is to address the goal of increased safety, and we intend for the primary improvements to create a better environment for pedestrians.
This project is intended to make the Halsey-Weidler corridor a safer environment for all modes of transportation by defining how drivers should behave and by enhancing public transit facilities.
By introducing curb extensions, enhanced marked crosswalks at 106th and, pedestrian scale lighting at the intersections, people will have a safer and more comfortable environment to walk from business to business.
The addition of street trees and unique banners on the new street lights will help reestablish the identity of the neighborhood.
Curb extensions will also provide opportunities for others to incorporate street furnishings like benches, trash receptacles, drinking fountains, and, planters.
The overall goal of the Halsey Safety Project is to help create a pedestrian friendly ‘Main Street’ desired by the community and to help support the local business district. This project will constructing the following improvements:
NE Halsey & NE Weidler from 102nd - 112th Avenues
PBOT staff have been visiting the affected neighborhood associations and will be contacting property owners and residents directly affected by the project. Feel free to contact the project manager with any questions, concerns or ideas related to the project:
