portland news

City & Partners to Host Upcoming Public Meeting for Commercial Street Operations & Master Plan. 

The City of Portland, PACTS and the MaineDOT are hosting a Public Meeting to review and get input on alternative transportation operations and infrastructure concepts for Commercial Street. Three concepts will be presented at the meeting that include various combinations of strategies to address key goals the study team heard during the public outreach process. These key goals include:  improving motorist travel time and reliability; enhancing marine operations and access to piers/wharves; and improving multimodal access (bus, bicycle and pedestrian) along Commercial Street. Each concept is intended to illustrate the trade-offs and benefits of different approaches to achieving these goals to different degrees.  Strategies within each concept also vary ways to address safety, accommodating deliveries, and on-street parking/curb-side management. It is anticipated that the final recommendations will include a combination of the best strategies from each concept.

The meeting will begin with an Open House from 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM to review exhibits and ask questions. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. The main portion of the meeting will begin at 6:30 PM.

Additional information in advance of the meeting can be found at:
