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.    

Critical Fixes: Major Maintenance Project draft concept design & online survey deadline extended

Thanks to the 250+ 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 participate in an online survey. We are extending the survey deadline until April 30, 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.
