Project Overview

About Allen Street

Allen Street is a key east-west route across Kelso that businesses, schools, residents and visitors rely on. Vehicle volumes, proximity to I-5, short distances between intersections, and the presence of nearby schools and businesses contribute to frequent backups that result in delays and unsafe conditions. As a result of the traffic conditions, people driving, walking, biking, or riding transit face delays and safety challenges throughout the corridor. This project studied potential solutions to address these challenges.
