Project Background 

PBOT identified this segment as a sidewalk gap in PedPDX. This project will restripe the existing paved space to provide an interim safer shoulder walkway and bikeway with physical separation from the roadway, separate people bicycling and pedestrians where possible, and clarify legal turning movements to and from adjacent businesses and residences. This project is recommended in the Southwest in Motion plan and it is funded in part by Fixing Our Streets.
