PORTLAND — The city will unveil a proposal next week for improving pedestrian safety at Cutter Street and the Eastern Promenade.
City planners are working to redesign the intersection and reduce its width so that vehicle traffic is better controlled and pedestrians can cross more safely. The current crosswalk at Cutter Street stretches for 100 feet across the broad, V-shaped junction, making the crosswalk the longest in Portland.
Engineering plans will be presented at a public meeting Wednesday, Jan. 9, at 7:15 p.m. in City Hall.
