Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and the City of Albany Division of Traffic Engineering invite residents, businesses, and community stakeholders to view an online presentation and share feedback via a survey for the Washington Park Area Complete Streets Study. This is an opportunity to review and provide reaction to the draft recommendations for investments designed to enhance pedestrian safety, reduce traffic, and improve mobility and access for all users of Washington Park.
The City of Albany initiated this Complete Streets Traffic Planning Study for the Washington Park Area. The study evaluates pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle traffic circulation within the area, using a Complete Streets approach to enable safe, convenient, and comfortable travel/access for users of all ages and abilities regardless of their mode of transportation.
The purpose of this complete streets study is to:
Identify transportation network enhancements that honor the historical nature of Washington Park.
Reduce or minimize the negative effects of traffic in the study area.
Consider mobility and access for park users of all abilities including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists, emergency access, parking impacts, and special events.
