Project Background

This project will provide enhanced crossing treatments such as curb extensions, islands, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, cycle tracks, and multi-use paths for pedestrians and bicyclists at busy streets and nearby schools.

Key Design Elements

NE 72nd Ave through Roseway neighborhood

From NE 72nd Avenue through Rose City Golf Course this project will re-purpose the north-bound lane to be a shared car-free path. Southbound cyclists will ride in the downhill direction with mixed traffic. Full access to the Golf Course will be maintained from NE Tillamook Street.

NE 74th Ave at NE Tillamook St

New high-visibility marked crossings at the intersection of NE 74th Avenue and NE Tillamook Street will help people walking and rolling safely cross the street. These markings also assist in general wayfinding as one travels along the 70’s Greenway.

NE Halsey Street Connection

As the 70’s Greenway intersects NE Halsey St, new protected bike lanes will make the brief transition on this busier street safer and more comfortable.

SE 78th Ave at SE Foster Blvd

This project will include a major crossing improvement at SE 78th Avenue at SE Foster Boulevard. This intersection improvement will include a two-way cycle track connection, curb extensions, new median islands, and high-visibility crosswalk markings.

NE Everett St: 76th to 78th

This project will be paving Everett St from 76th to 78th. Seven foot (7ft) sidewalks will also be included on both sides of the road. The width of the road includes parking on both sides.
