A brief overview of the Northwest in Motion plan

Portland's neighborhood greenways are designed to be calm streets that provide a safe and comfortable biking and walking experience. Neighborhood greenways typically feature a shared street environment rather than separated bike lanes, and use elements such as speed bumps, traffic diverters, enhanced crossings, and wayfinding to ensure that the street is clearly prioritized for people walking and biking while preserving local motor vehicle access.
