Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway

Meeting Area: Ainsworth St to Prescott St

PBOT hosted a survey to help shape NE 9th Ave Neighborhood Greenway project, connecting people from Lloyd to Woodlawn. This survey focused on the north end of the project between Prescott St and Ainsworth St.The survey was open until October 27th.

Survey topics include:

  • Serving community destinations: Neighborhood greenways connect to and through neighborhoods. What key destinations can this route connect you to?
  • Reducing illegal speeding: Learn about engineering tools to create neighborhood-friendly speeds, tell us where speeding is the biggest concern.
  • Helping people cross the street: PBOT will install changes to make intersections safer for people to cross. Tell us where street crossings are uncomfortable and need attention.
  • Keeping neighborhood streets quiet: The best neighborhood greenways are quiet streets with low levels of traffic. Hear ideas for traffic pattern changes to reduce long distance drive-through traffic in neighborhood, and let us know what you think.

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.
