Special City Notice:
Portland Announces Second PTC Neighborhood Byway Meeting, May 2nd, 6:30 PM - You're Invited!
Please attend this meeting to provide your input on the draft design plans for the Portland Transportation Center Neighborhood Byway. The Byway seeks to to enhance bicyclist and pedestrian connections to and from the Deering Center Neighborhood Byway to the Portland Transportation Center/Thompson's Point and the Fore River Parkway Trail and points in between. The PTC Byway is one part of a planned 30-mile network of Byways that will connect the city's schools, parks and trails, transportation centers and neighborhood centers using local streets. The proposed route uses Sewall Street, Whitney Avenue, Orland Street, Beacon Street and Nevens Street. It is scheduled to be constructed in 2018. The project is using a combination of federal, state and local transportation funding.
When - Tuesday, May 2nd, 6:30 - 8:00 PM
Where - Woodfords Club, 179 Woodford Street, Portland, on the 1st floor.
We'll be posting information on the background of the project and provide a little insight into some of the draft design we'll be presenting, along with the full design and project elements before the meeting on the Portland Neighborhood Byway program website at:
We hope to see you on the 2nd! If you are unable to make the meeting, please do send comments you may have via email to Bruce Hyman, Transportation Program Manager, (email@example.com) in advance or during the week or so after the meeting. The project team will be looking to incorporate any needed changes based on your collective feedback during May and June.
