Improvements Coming To Bethel
Bethel will see some changes to improve safety for pedestrians, bikers and drivers. This summer the City is planning a paving project on Barger Drive from Primrose (just west of Beltline) to Altamont (just east of Beltline.) The City is also adding a crosswalk at Avalon and Haviture Way, as well as speed calming measures on Avalon.
At a later date, Safe Routes to School will be funding a crosswalk on North Terry Street near Kalapuya High School; school speed zone flashers and speed readers on Barger in front of Meadow View School; a crosswalk and curb extensions at Marshall Ave and Taney St., along with traffic calming devices on Marshall; and a new crosswalk, pedestrian island, and pedestrian flashers on Barger at Altamont.
