PORTLAND — The future of Franklin Street will be the topic of a public workshop beginning at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1, at the Rines Auditorium in the Portland Public Library.

Redesign concepts for the street have been in the works for more than two years, study spokeswoman Carol Morris said in a press release Monday.

“While many details still remain to be worked out, the public will get a much clearer idea of the street’s ultimate look and function,” Morris said.

The goal of the redesign is better traffic flow, and enhanced pedestrian and bicyclist access and safety. The designs also include ideas for development in corridors next to the street.
