Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway

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


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.

Project Timeline

 Time Frame    Milestone
February 2010   Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030 adopted by City Council

February 2018   Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway Phase 1:
Listening and Learning

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.

What we created: The Lloyd to Woodlawn Open House Summary Report

May - June 2018    Design Options
   

What we’ll do: The project team will continue to develop and share design options related to both alignment options.

Who we’ll involve: Businesses, Residents, Neighborhood Associations, School PTAs, and Portland Public Schools.

What we’ll do with the feedback: Gather a more complete understanding of the specific access and circulation needs and considerations related to potential designs. Public involvement is ongoing and feedback will be incorporated into design concepts.
