Northmount Drive N.W. is scheduled for re-paving in 2017, which presents a cost-saving opportunity to improve the current road design so it functions better for everyone (people who walk, bike, drive and take transit). The project team is looking at ways to improve traffic flow and pedestrian crossings, as well as accommodate bicycle lanes which were recommended on Northmount Drive N.W. in the 2001 Pathway and Bikeway Implementation Plan and in the 2014 Complete Streets Guide.
The project team will give a short presentation before beginning small group discussions. Each table will have one technical expert and one facilitator to provide an overview about the project, answer questions and lead discussions. Participants will be asked to fill out a feedback form after each topic is discussed.
Two identical sessions are being offered at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to accommodate as many people as possible. Please RSVP by October 14, 2016 for the session you would like to attend. You can also RSVP calling 311.
