The project is currently in design and public involvement is taking place. Residents, schools, neighborhood associations, and other community organizations will receive postcards and other communications about the project with opportunities to learn more and provide feedback.


Background

This project is funded by the Fixing Our Streets program with a budget of $500k.

The project comes from the East Portland in Motion plan. The plan called for large investments in pedestrian, bicycle, and safety improvements east of 82nd Avenue. 


Project Goals

  • To provide a safe, easy-to-follow corridor for people to walk, bike, and roll between the Parkrose Heights, Russell, and Wilkes neighborhoods.
  • To maintain streets with slower traffic speeds for people sharing the road.
  • To help people crossing busy streets, like NE 122nd and 148th avenues, find the safest places to cross.
  • To provide a safe route to school for Margaret Scott, Russell, and Wheatley families.

Project Design

The project has just begun design. There are not plans to share yet. Staff expects project elements to include:

  • Speed bumps to keep speeds at or below 20 mph.
  • Wayfinding sign and pavement markings to help people follow the safest route.
  • The map below shows the expected project route

UPDATED: Project Schedule

The specific project schedule is still being developed. Staff expects the project to follow these approximate timelines:

  • Design - Fall 2023 to Spring 2024
  • Public Outreach - Fall 2023 to Spring 2024
  • Construction - Fall 2024

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Will this project build bike lanes?

While the project is still in design, it is unlikely to include bike lanes. 

What will the wayfinding signs and pavement markings look like?
Image shows a wayfinding sign and shared lane pavement marking.

The main pavement marking will be a shared lane marking that shows people where to ride and where to expect people on bikes. The wayfinding signs and pavement markings are shown in the image at right. 

Will on-street parking be removed?

There may be some parking impacted at intersections. In order to ensure visibility of corridor users, a short no-parking visibility area may be required. Those areas do not allow parking approximately 20 feet from an intersection or a marked crosswalk. 

How can I get involved?

The project team is actively looking for opportunities to meet with community organizations. Please contact the project team at: NeighborhoodGreenways@portlandoregon.gov
