SE Ankeny Neighborhood Greenway Improvement Project

welcome to our neighborhood greenway

SE Ankeny is a popular biking route, with over 2,000 people biking along the route per day. Ankeny is classified as a Neighborhood Greenway; a street that prioritizes bicycling and has design features that encourage walking. In 2015, the Portland Bureau of Transportation evaluated our network of Neighborhood Greenways and identified operational improvements needed on SE Ankeny to address increased volumes and high motor vehicle speeds.

The Ankeny Neighborhood Greenway Improvement project includes the area of SE Ankeny from just east of 13th Avenue to just west of 27th Avenue.

To date, the following improvements have been completed:

  • Temporary diverter installed at 15th in July 2016 following public input on striping and signage.
  • Signs installed.
  • Delineators added to existing median at 20th.
  • Stop signs have been reoriented on SE Ash at 13th, 15th & 18th, on Pine at 15th, 16th & 18th.
  • New crosswalk markings by Buckman Elementary school at SE 16th & Pine.
  • ADA compliant curb ramps (currently in construction) at SE 26th & 28th. This request came from open house attendees, and was added to project scope.

Next steps: Nine speed bumps will be constructed this spring/summer.
