Northwest In Motion will engage the community to identify a five-year active transportation implementation strategy that will provide walking, bicycling, and transit improvements in the Northwest District town center, a rapidly-growing housing and jobs center in inner NW Portland. The plan will identify, develop, and prioritize multimodal transportation investments to provide safety for vulnerable roadway users, reduce conflict between modes, and give people living and working in the district more transportation options. Major outcomes include:
The project area includes the inner Northwest neighborhoods bounded by Hwy 30, I-405, Burnside, and the West Hills. Located on the west side of the Willamette River it is within a mile of downtown Portland. The area is home to some of the oldest and most densely populated portions of the city with a diverse mix of single family homes and apartments, commercial, residential, and industrial uses, as well as numerous regionally important religious and community organizations. The heart of the neighborhood is the Alphabet District, a local and national historic area centered around NW 23rd Avenue, a major shopping and dining destination for the region.
