PBOT will repave NE Alberta Street between 15th and 30th Avenues. Over 60 sidewalk corners will be rebuilt to create ADA-accessible curb ramps.
What's happening now?
Construction of Phase 1 of the project has begun and will continue through Fall 2020. Phase 1 includes upgraded curb ramp improvements on NE Alberta Street between NE 17th and 27th.
Project background and description
NE Alberta Street is a vibrant community hub of art galleries, shops, restaurants, bars, and various amenities. This project will make the entire street more accessible for people walking and will extend the life of the roadway.
This project includes:
Upgraded Curb Ramps
PBOT will rebuild over 60 sidewalk corners to make them ADA-accessible. These upgrades vary corner to corner, from minor to major improvements. Some will include a new detectable warning surface to alert people with vision impairments that they are about to enter the road. Some will be redesigned to provide a smoother transition for wheelchair users. Some corners will be completely reconstructed.
Repaving and Restriping
PBOT will completely repave NE Alberta Street between 15th and 30th Avenues, approximately 1.8 lane miles. After the grind and pave is over, PBOT will restripe all crosswalk and centerline markings and replace any street signs impacted by the work. PBOT will pave the road in multiple phases and anticipates full road closures of two to four consecutive blocks at a time.
