This project will improve conditions pedestrians and people biking by reducing vehicle speeding, reducing auto traffic volumes, upgrading crossings of busy streets, and creating new connections to existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure on or near SW and NW 20th Ave.
What's Happening Now
Construction of Phase 2 is on hold until building construction on SW 16th and 17th Avenues, and SW Alder Street are substantially completed.
Project Background and Description
Phase 2 - In Construction

Phase I - Complete
Completed project elements include speed bumps, signage, and pavement markings. Paint and post curb extensions at NW Everett, Lovejoy and Northrup installed. Curb extension and crosswalk at NW Glisan and NW 20th installed. Installation of traffic operation changes to protect the neighborhood character of NW 20th Ave at NW Raleigh and NW 20th restricting north-south access and NW Everett and NW 20th restricting north-bound access.
The project is partially funded by $200,000 from the Fixing Our Streets initiative. Other funding sources are needed to accomplish the full plan.
