City Council approves Corbett Avenue traffic calming
By Lee Perlman
The Southwest Portland Post
The Portland City Council last
month unanimously approved a
$150,000 package of traffic calming
improvements for Southwest Corbett
Avenue between Grover and Hamil-
ton streets last month. The city had
previously installed similar improve-
ments on the street to the south.
Project manager Elizabeth Mahon
said that although the street is of-
ficially classified as a local service
street, it is in fact a through route that
attracts 4,500 car trips a day, many of
them traveling at high speeds.
“We hope that this will return this
to a local street where people can
walk about safely,” South Portland
Neighborhood Association chair Ken
Love told the City Council.
South Portland’s Lee Buehler said
that many people in the neighbor-
hood would be tempted to walk or
bike to downtown, leaving their
cars behind, if they thought it was
safe. Of the process to develop the
specific proposal he said, “Everyone
who wanted to have a say had a say.”
South Portland board member and
Corbett resident Chris Dorn agreed,
“The city worked very well with us.
This is a very eclectic neighborhood,
but there was unanimous support for
this.” He noted, “This is the neigh-
borhood under the tram.”
Commissioner Erik Sten picked up
Eggs O’Connor and other notables.
