The SE 162nd Avenue Safe Access to Transit Project aims to improve safety for all
people walking, taking transit, biking and driving on 162nd Ave between SE
Alder St (just south of SE Stark St) and SE Powell Blvd. In 2018, TriMet added new
bus service, Line 74, on 162nd Ave. Project funding comes from a partnership
between TriMet and PBOT. Construction is planned for 2020.

Goals for the Project:

  • Build safer crossings near transit stops
  • Increase safety through street design and reduce speeding
  • Improve existing bicycle lanes

To accomplish these goals, the project is proposing to enhance three pedestrian
crossings serving Line 74 bus stops and reduce the number of vehicle travel lanes
to improve overall safety. The project also includes sidewalks, street lighting, and
enhancements to the bike lanes.
