Improving safety and comfort for people walking and bicycling in NE neighborhoods, and providing a safe option for people accessing Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

Overview

The Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway Project will expand our citywide low-stress walking and bicycling network in Northeast Portland by creating a safe and pleasant place to walk or bike to employment centers, neighborhood destinations, schools, and nearby parks.

The project will reduce conflict between users, improve safety for everyone, and establish a low stress walking and biking route connecting the Woodlawn, Vernon, Sabin, King, Irvington neighborhoods to the Lloyd neighborhood and the future Sullivan’s Crossing bridge.

The project recommendation is a result of close community involvement including a broad array of stakeholders and designed to understand the opportunities and challenges of the streets under consideration.

Learn more about what we heard at focus groups hosted with our Black community organizational partners. Their involvement directly influenced the recommended route and design, to help us identify a project with broad community support.

Project Timeline (Updated March 2019)

 Time Frame    Milestone
February 2010   Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 adopted by City Council
    Both NE 9th and NE 7th were classified as bikeways as a part of the Bicycle Plan for 2030, Portland’s long range plan for bicycle network implementation.
Spring 2016   Portland voters passed Fixing our Streets (Measure 26-173)
    The voter approved work plan for Fixing Our Streets includes funding for planning and design of the Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway.
    Transportation System Plan Updated
    As part of the update to our citywide Transportation System Plan, both NE 9th and NE 7th Ave were classified as  major city bikeways, with final determination of bikeway classification to happen as a part of a future planning process.
February 2018   Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway Phase 1:
Listening and Learning
    What we did: launched a public involvement process, identified opportunities and considerations related to potential alignments and designs. PBOT hosted an open house at King Elementary School on Feburary 28th, and held an online open house from March 1st -16th.

Who we involved: The project team met with residents, neighborhood associations, interested PTAs, and hosted a Listening and Learning Open House in person and on line.

Design Options
   

What we did: The project team developed and shared design options related to both potential routes. See the Design Concept Sketchbook and Initial Route Analysis.

Who we involved: Businesses, Residents, Neighborhood Associations

What we did with the feedback:  Open house feedback is documented in the Design Options Open House Summary Report. Feedback will influence design details, and our understanding of impacts related to the route options.

Due to the high level of interest, no decision has been made about the route and design. An additional phase of public engagement will occur before any decision is made.

Fall/Winter 2018 and Early 2019   Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway Phase 3:
Additional Community Discussion
   

PBOT and the project team will host additional conversations with the community about the project design options and solutions.

The Initial project schedule called for a decision making about the route and design in Fall of 2018. The project team is holding off on any immediate decision until additional community engagement can take place.

What we did: Meet with community stakeholders, host community focus groups.

Who we involved: NE 7th businesses, Residents, Black Community Stakeholders

What we did with the feedback: Public involvement in this phase directly influenced the recommended route and design, to help us identify a project with broad community support.
