In July, 470 people gave feedback about corridor planning for Lowry Avenue NE through an online survey. Of the respondents, approximately 72% live, work or own businesses along or near the corridor. Among residents who noted their neighborhood, 240 (or 51%) are from neighborhoods directly along the Lowry Avenue NE corridor.
West of the Central Avenue intersection, respondents’ first preference is for a roadway with a bicycle lane, with a second preference for wider sidewalks. For Lowry Avenue east of Central Avenue, the first preference was a buffered bike lane and the second, a bicycle lane.
Survey responses about the six study intersections emphasized better signage for turn lanes and general wayfinding, improvements to building facades and streetscaping, wider sidewalks and redevelopment.
The survey data will be evaluated along with additional community input received to date, in the decision-making process for final recommended roadway and intersections designs.
