Critical Fixes: Near-term Safety & Maintenance Improvements

PBOT is investing in 82nd Avenue to deliver critical fixes. These urgent safety and maintenance repairs to the corridor include repaving and upgraded curb ramps, pedestrian crossings, street lighting, safety improvements, tree planting, and sidewalk improvements. Critical Fixes projects will be in construction between 2023 and 2026.    

Major Maintenance Project draft concept design & online survey now available

Thanks to the 100+ community members who have submitted feedback so far on the Critical Fixes: Major Maintenance Project concept design! We invite you to review the draft concept design and invite you to participate in an online survey. The survey will be open until April 15, 2023. As part of this survey, property owners and business owners will be able to share access needs for specific properties and/or businesses, and the public will also be able to share comments on the draft concept design.
