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).

Current News

After two years of community engagement, advisory committee meetings, and technical analysis, the final recommended draft of the Columbia / Lombard Mobility Corridor Plan has been adopted by City Council. Thanks to everyone who participated in the development of this plan. We look forward to begin working on implementing the recommendations in the plan. 

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.
