Crosswalk improvements come to Old Town

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead

A highly successful BetterBlockPDX pilot project in October in Portland’s Old Town/Chinatown demonstrated what can be done to improve walkability by re-imagining under-used street space as bike lanes, crosswalks, and plazas for people.

Just two months later, the City of Portland is already moving forward on making improvements permanent. The first of new crosswalks in Old Town was installed at a very needed location – NW 2nd & NW Couch.

Happy Holidays!
