Title: Portland : Burnside/Couch transportation and urban design plan technical refinements
Author: Dorn, Mark; Rhodes, Vic; Portland Development Commission; Portland (Or.). Office of Transportation; Portland (Or.); Sharpe, Sumner; Parametrix, Inc.; URS Inc.; Holmes, Craig S.; Lindley, Lloyd D.
Abstract: The plan provides a vision and strategy for "humanizing Burnside" by transforming the Central City's most blighted area into a "people place" that is comfortable, safe and exciting. Street improvements and new development will create a place to walk, congregate, work, live and visit. The proposed improvements eliminate the barrier between the adjacent neighborhoods and businesses that Burnside presents today. Burnside is envisioned as a gateway to Portland's most dense neighborhoods, with diverse and interesting districts and activities. The Burnside Transportation and Urban Design Plan promises to provide safe access for all modes of travel. It will improve and clarify vehicular access to, from and within districts and neighborhoods where underdeveloped properties have development potential. The project boundary includes a 2.3 mile reach through the Central City from East 14th Avenue to West 24th Place. [From the Plan]
