2017 Main Street Pilot Project
Beautiful Downtown Lewiston (BDL) is partnering with the City of Lewiston Public Works Department to implement a temporary pilot project on Main Street from April 9 to May 31, 2017. The pilot project is in response to Main Street businesses interested in creating a more pedestrian friendly downtown and increasing parking on Main Street.
The pilot project will temporarily re-stripe Main Street between 7th and 9th to test out parallel parking on the north side of Main Street, two lanes of east bound traffic and diagonal parking on the south side of Main Street. The project’s goals are to slow traffic speeds, increase pedestrian and bike safety in the area and increase parking adjacent to Main Street businesses. There is enough space between the existing curb lines to experiment with these improvements; major street reconstruction is not contemplated at this time.
