Columbia/Lombard Mobility Corridor Plan

The Columbia/Lombard Mobility Corridor Plan is a plan to address safety, mobility, and access for freight, active transportation, and public transit both along the corridor (east/west) and across it (north/south).

Project Overview

Columbia Lombard Corridor Plan

NE Columbia Blvd and NE Lombard St, running parallel on opposite sides of the Kenton Line railroad, are vital links in the regionally-identified mobility corridor running east and west between the I-5 and I-205 freeways. Both corridors are on the City's High Crash Network, and are suffering from aging infrastructure, gaps and deficiencies in the bicycle and pedestrian network, and inconsistent travel times. All users would benefit from improvements that would enhance mobility and access, provide greater connectivity, and reduce conflicts.

Spring 2020 Public Outreach Summary

PBOT conducted the final round of public outreach in March 2020. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused challenges for outreach, the team was able to gather 440 responses from the online survey.

Coming Soon

  • Final Draft Plan - the team is developing the final plan document. Anticipated to be published in late Fall 2020.
  • City Council Adoption - the final plan will be taken to City Council for adoption, estimated in late 2020 or early 2021. The exact date is currently unknown and may be further delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
