North Oak is the spine of the Northland. This project would not encourage suburban sprawl, but enhance an established community.

North Oak is a heavily used north-south route in the Northland. Connectivity for bikes and pedestrians needs improvement. Traffic signals for vehicles and bike/ped needs to be upgraded to satisfy ADA, current MUTCD, and future transit standards.

N Oak Trafficway is the "Main Street" of the Northland and it should look/be built like it is. This project is so important to the Northland as a whole and should be built as soon as is possible!

I attended the open house at the Community Center and did not see much that justified the expense. I am a biker, but reducing the number of lanes to accommodate bikes seems inappropriate. If we want to improve it, widen it. I realize that entails more cost to acquire right of way, but feel that would be better spent than reducing lanes.

Will it benefit the businesses along the street? Will people be more likely to come shop there? Or will it just enable people to travel through Gladstone more quickly?

N. Oak is the "Main Street" and spine of the Northland as James and Jacob noted. Our aging N-S route is not only putting our families at risk, but it’s also preventing economic growth.
