What's happening now?
Project team finalizing designs. Construction anticipated Fall 2021.
Multiple bus lines use Jefferson to connect from the Hawthorne Bridge to Goose Hollow. This street is also a critical west connection through downtown for people driving.
PBOT will improve transit speed and reliability by adding a bus-only lane approaching Collins Circle on Jefferson while maintaining a buffered bike lane. PBOT will also add a bus priority signal treatment at Jefferson at 18th Avenue.
By getting buses out of the vehicle lane, PBOT will also reduce queuing for drivers heading to the freeway.
PBOT will improve Jefferson from 15th Avenue to Naito Parkway and SW Columbia from 13th Avenue to Naito Parkway in future project phases.
Business Access and Transit (BAT) lanes Transit priority BAT lanes on Jefferson will allow the buses to access and get through downtown, relieving a major pinch point in the transit system.
Bike Lane Moving the bike lane to the curb on Jefferson and adding a buffer will improve comfort and safety.
People moving capacity Changes in street design would increase the number of people that the street could accommodate. To accommodate these improvements, PBOT will remove parking from the north side of the street.
