What's happening now?

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has installed low-cost traffic diverter tests, sharrows, and crossing treatments on the NW Pettygrove Neighborhood Greenway. Neighborhood Greenway signage and some additional speed bumps are planned for installation in summer 2023.

Project background and description

The project was identified by the Northwest in Motion Plan, which represents over two years of analysis, community outreach, and problem-solving to improve walking, biking, and public transit in the Northwest District and surrounding area.

What is a neighborhood greenway?

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.
