The Portland Bureau of Transportation will be discussing several upcoming bike improvement projects in inner Northeast Portland.
On June 1 and June 15, transportation officials will hold meetings to discuss and elicit feedback about the bicycle infrastructure improvement projects. Both meetings run from 6 to 8 p.m. and will be held at Humboldt Elementary, 4915 N. Gantenbein Ave.
The projects, funded by a grant from the federal government, will connect Going Street to the Willamette River on Swan Island, as well as build the Michigan Neighborhood Greenway from Bryant Street to Fremont Street.
The goals of the project include reducing speeds on residential streets, minimizing cut-through traffic on these streets, ensure safe crossings by pedestrians and bicycles on busy streets and provide easy access to schools, parks and local businesses. The project aims to provide safe routes to seven schools including Jefferson High, Humboldt Elementary and Portland Community College.
The public is encouraged to attend to learn more about the project, and provide recommendations and concerns.
For any questions about the meetings, contact [email protected] or 503-823-1052.
