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 travels through and along the Elliot, Irvington, King, and Woodlawn neighborhoods, and connects people to popular community destinations such as parks, school, retail and other commercial destinations.
Establishing a neighborhood greenway in the neighborhood is a part of Fixing our Streets initiative, and is built upon recommendations of the citywide Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 and Transportation System Plan.
Staff held a Listening and Learning Open House in February/March 2018. Read more about the comments received:
