The Portland Bureau of Transportation's (PBOT) Northwest in Motion Plan represents over two years of analysis, community outreach, and problem-solving to improve walking, biking, and public transit in the Northwest District and surrounding area.
We're starting to roll out projects theat were highlighted in the Northwest in Motion plan, such as the NW Flanders Neighborhood Greenway, NW Johnson and NW Marshal Greenway Enhancements, and will soon be starting on the NW 24th Neighborhood Greenway.
In select locations, the City is utilizing a new street design in order to accommodate the necessary modes while maintaining access to buildings. When parking cars on these streets, please continue to follow the direction of traffic. If you are parking on the left side of the street, please drive slowly, look for oncoming bicyclists, and proceed to park your car with the driver side door to the curb. Parking on the right side of the street continues as normal.
The Northwest in Motion Plan was adopted by City Council in October 2020!
This is the culmination of over two years of data-driven analysis, community outreach, and collaborative problem-solving to develop a near-term implementation plan to improve walking, biking, and public transit in the Northwest District and surrounding area.
