What's happening now?

We are currently asking for feedback on recommendations that will be incorporated into the final 122nd Avenue Plan. Visit our online open house to learn about the recommendations and provide input. A draft of this plan will be available in early 2022. The Plan will identify near-term, mid-term, and long-term recommendations and establish an implementation framework to address the identified challenges on 122nd.

Project Goals

  • Increase safety for all, improve pedestrian and bicycle access and support better transit while balancing needs of freight and other modes.
  • Identify improvements to help eliminate serious injuries and fatalities and remove 122nd from the Vision Zero High Crash Corridor Network.

Project Background

122nd Avenue, 6.4 miles in length, acts as both a north-south regional connector and as the backbone for many neighborhood centers in east Portland. The street carries a lot of travelers with large vehicles volumes, a bus line, and many people walking, biking, and rolling. This is a hardworking street serving essential jobs and services. 

There is growing need and community demand for a safer street and better transit, bicycle facilities, sidewalks, crossings and streetscape along the 122nd Avenue. Currently, 122nd Ave is a difficult and stressful environment to walk, bike, cross the street, and access transit. The streettypically a five-lane road with on-street parkinghas narrow bike lanes that become turn lanes at major signalized intersections, narrow and substandard sidewalks, crosswalks that do not meet the City's crosswalk spacing guidelines, buses that experience delay, and gaps in streetlighting that contribute to personal safety concerns. 122nd Avenue has also been identified as part of the Vision Zero High Crash Network.
