Neighborhood transportation needs tour

A few weeks ago, we didn’t have our usual City Council session, so I had some unscheduled time. I decided to spend a couple of hours touring a couple of safety projects currently underway in East Portland.

I spend a lot of time hearing about and talking about and trying to do something about the gaps in our pedestrian network; I decided it would be nice to see some of the work that the Bureau of Transportation has been able to do with the limited resources it has. While out looking at a couple of locations, some neighbors stopped me to say what a difference the safety improvement have made in the community.

I was very, very glad that I had the chance to spend a couple of hours that way, and would like to take a look at a few more locations that are in need of maintenance and safety improvements.

PBOT Staff is helping to organize a tour on August 19 that will include a stop at safety improvement needs in East and Southwest Portland and a maintenance need in the Central City. I invite you to come out to the following locations and to have a discussion about our transportation needs:

  • SE 130th and Salmon Street (near David Douglas High School)— 10:00AM
  • 36th and Hawthorne— 10:45AM
  • SW Capitol Hwy. & Garden Home Rd.— 11:45AM

Join neighborhood advocates, PBOT staff, and myself to either (or all!) of these locations to get a firsthand look at some of the many transportation needs throughout our City.
