2017 Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks and Street Elected Projects

STREETS | Delridge Way SW and SW Oregon St

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
Fast paced traffic along this residential corridor creates a challenging crossing for pedestrians. This year, we're installing a signalized crosswalk and updating curb ramps. Per the public vote, these fixes will enhance access to the existing pedestrian bridge and create an at-grade option for crossing Delridge Way SW.

The project supports plans for upgrading Metro Route 120 to RapidRide H and improving connections for people walking and biking in 2020.

Project Solution(s):

Install a signalized crosswalk at Delridge Way SW and SW Oregon St to supplement the current pedestrian bridge

Install enhanced pedestrian curb ramps and maintain ADA accessibility

Construction anticipated 2020 - 2021.

Please check the Delridge Way SW - RapidRide H Line project website for the latest updates.

Neighborhood: Delridge

STREETS | Delridge Way SW and SW Barton St

“Barton Bus Triangle” Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
The "Delridge Bus Triangle" is a City managed property in the heart of the Westwood Highland Park Urban Village. The location serves as a connection between Metro routes to the east, and the Westwood Village Transit mall to the west, along Barton Street SW. Installing sidewalks, and trimming the overgrown landscape, creates a safer space.

The project supports plans for upgrading local Metro Routes and improving connections for people walking and biking in 2020.

We have partnered with a "Friends of the Delridge Bus Triangle" to document the history, needs and collective vision of the space.

Project Solution(s):

Install an interim walking path on the south side of SW Barton St

Enhance and maintain the existing landscape

Construction was completed in June 2019.

Neighborhood: Westwood/Highland Park

Project Solution(s):

Install a painted walkway that parallels the road

12th Ave S, 8th Ave S and S Cloverdale St

Crossing Upgrades

Project Description and Goals:
South Cloverdale Street experiences high traffic volumes from people driving and walking, making several intersections challenging to cross. The intersections along Cloverdale provide a connection to South Park Playground, South Park Community Center, Concord International School and the SR-99 freeway. Modifying them increases predictability, accessibility, and safety for travelers.

Project Solution(s):

Install a new marked crosswalk

Upgrade the current signal to meet ADA standards

Construction was completed in December 2018.

Neighborhood: South Park
