Extra community support needed for the new Foster Road. The change is controversial (as all good ideas are) and the more support shown now the better.
Foster Road Open House - Thursday, December 5th - 6-8pm at SE Works (79th & Foster).
The new Foster Road will transform the street from a fast thoroughfare with a history of traffic crashes to a neighborhood main street. The new street will have one lane in each direction, a center turn lane, bike lanes, and parking lanes where there is room. The sidewalks will have trees added, and the commercial areas will get better street lighting. Every 5 blocks or so there will be a safe pedestrian crossing, and east of 82nd, the sidewalk will be completely rebuilt and widened from the terrible conditions that exist today.
