PBOT to Offer Update on Streetscape Status at Neighborood Association Meeting

Tonight’s Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association meeting will bring Rich Newlands, from the city’s Bureau of Transportation, to discuss the current timeline and progress for the Foster Road Transportation and Streetscape Plan.

Streetscape IIIn short, the Streetscape Plan will bring traffic calming measures, improved pedestrian safety, bike facilities, and some level of beutification to Foster. And after nearly 13 years of waiting for some semblence of these improvements to be made, it appears as if Foster may soon get the overhaul it needs. Hopefully Rich Newlands will be offering good news as to the status of the project, and perhaps a more specific timeline for its anticipated completion.

The Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association meets tonight (and every second Monday), from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at Foster Burger.

    Bummer that Foster-Powell’s NA meetings are on the same day as Richmond’s. I would have liked to attend this meeting. Hoping for some good news!

    So… what’s the chance we can get an update on this from someone who attended the meeting last night??? Anyone?

    • In short:
      Surveying is complete; design and engineering should go until summer; project goes out to bid sometime in the Fall/end of 2016; construction ideally starts at the beginning of 2017.

      It’s behind the schedule we all originally anticipated, but my worst fear was alleviated at the presentation: it is indeed going to happen.
