Works / Transportation – Green Streets 102nd Avenue / Portland, Oregon

102nd Avenue

GreenWorks provided urban design services for 1.1 miles of 102nd Avenue in east Portland. In addition to streetscape design elements, GreenWorks worked with traffic engineers to identify key areas for right-of-way acquisition, improvements to key intersections, pedestrian crossing areas, vegetated traffic islands and general improvements to the pedestrian environment. In addition to roadway improvements, GreenWorks prepared recommendations for street furnishings, pedestrian pavings, sidewalk widths, illumination and vegetation, and presented these alternatives in a series of public and Citizen’s Advisory Committee meetings. This work is a continutation of the preliminary design and public facilitation GreenWorks accomplished during a Conceptual Design phase of the project in 2003-2004.
