City seeks input on Alabama corridor safety improvements

Officials with the city of Bellingham will present several Alabama Street transportation safety alternatives from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, in the Roosevelt Elementary School cafeteria at 2900 Yew St.

Local residents and business owners will have a chance to see major safety alternatives that are being examined as part of the city’s Alabama Corridor Study. City officials will also take questions from attendees.

Bellingham received more than $1.4 million in federal funding last May to study possible safety improvements along Alabama Street from Cornwall Avenue to St. Clair Street, and then construct the preferred improvement found through the study.

The city’s goal is to reduce collisions and improve safety for users of the Alabama Street corridor, including pedestrians, cyclists, buses, cars and freight vehicles. Safety in that area has been an ongoing concern for residents.

More information is available on the city’s webpages for the Alabama Street Corridor Multimodal Safety Improvements Project  and the Six-Year Transportation Improvements Program 2013-2018 (Project #6).
