Allen Street Complete Streets Reconstruction
Complete Street | Buffalo, New York
Allen Street runs through the center of the historic Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo, New York, a robust community with a strong artisan presence. Working with the City and Bergmann Associates, Halvorson Design is radically redesigning the street to serve the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and an active community.
The project reimagines Allen Street as a complete street with improved edges, increased safety and clearly defined travel ways to improve traffic flow. Movable bollards will be installed along the raised parking lane to allow flexible use with the street’s busy event schedule. The City will be able to easily limit parking on one or both sides of the street to accommodate farmer’s markets, art shows or parade routes. Other complete street features will include improved pedestrian crossings, new street trees, permeable pavement and furnishings that make Allen Street a pleasant environment for all users.
