Neighborhood Greenways are residential streets where bicycles and pedestrians are given priority. As part of the Neighborhood Greenways program, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is installing artistic street sign toppers to help people identify the Greenway. PBOT also uses speed bumps, traffic diverters and pavement markings to slow auto traffic and reduce cut-throughs along these streets.
This spring and summer, PBOT will be hosting community events on the Going Street Greenway and offering promotional incentives to residents and businesses near the street. Funding for the Neighborhood Greenway outreach project comes from a grant awarded by the Oregon Department of Transportation. The grant project, called “Going to the River,” funds bicycle and pedestrian improvements in North and Northeast Portland, including Swan Island.
