What's Happening Now?
Striping for the street reconfiguration and updated parking has been completed. PBOT crews will return in the spring to install new curb ramps and mark crosswalks.
Project Background and Description
This crossing was identified as an important connection for students and families accessing Harrison Park School. Walking routes and problem intersections were highlighted by school communities during a Safe Routes to School outreach process held throughout 2017.
You can read more about the planning process and see a map of citywide project locations at SafeRoutesProjects.com.
Here are the planned project elements for SE 92nd and Lincoln (numbers correspond with the image below):
- Build a segment of sidewalk and three new curb ramps on the NW and SW corners of the intersection
- Mark crosswalks across SE Lincoln and SE 92nd Ave
- Build a concrete island in the SE 92nd Ave crosswalk to provide a waiting space for people walking
- Tighten turning radius to slow southbound vehicles turning right from SE 92nd onto SE Lincoln
- Separate automobile and bicycle travel lanes with concrete barriers
- Extend the east side bike lane through the intersection
- Adjust parking spaces by: removing six (6) legal parking spaces, but adding four (4) new legal parking spaces. This will be a total change of removing two (2).
The Fixing Our Streets 10-cent citywide gas tax was approved by voters in May 2016 and again in May 2020. The Safe Routes to School program receives funds from Fixing Our Streets to improve access to schools across Portland.
