Palou Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

The Palou Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project extends the entire length of the street, from Barneveld Avenue to Crisp Road, in the city’s Bayview district. Palou Avenue serves as a local commercial district for the surrounding residential neighborhood.  The 1.7-mile stretch of roadway flows through many communities in the Bayview, each with a distinct character. The corridor, largely residential, runs from an industrial corridor at the west end to the Hunters Point Shipyard to the east..The renovation will provide a safer and more inviting environment for pedestrians, motorists and transit riders.

The project is at the end of the design phase and the streetscape improvements may include: New street trees and plants, better lighting, bus shelters, curb ramps, bulb-outs, median islands, repaving and other enhancements to improve pedestrian safety by calming traffic and improving visibility at intersections.

Proposed design information for Quint cul-de-sac can be found here.
