The Portland Bureau of Transportation is working on a project to plan, design and construct safety improvements to a 9.1 mile north-south bicycle route. The route uses a variety of local residential streets and neighborhood collector streets between NE/SE 26th and 29th Aves. It runs from NE Lombard St at the north end of the City to connect to the Springwater Corridor at SE 45th Ave at the south end of the City. The project is funded through a $2.4 million federal grant.
PBOT will hold three open houses where you can learn more and provide input. The first open house will be held Thursday, March 13th from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Fremont United Methodist Church at 2620 NE Fremont. The same material will be presented at open houses in SE Portland on March 17 and March 18 at Cleveland High School and Central Catholic High School, respectively.
