Simpson Greenway/42nd Ave Crossing
This project will add a new neighborhood greenway on NE 41st Ave from Holman to Simpson Ct, Simpson Ct from 41st to Simpson St, and Simpson St from Simpson Ct to 55th. This will connect the existing Holman Greenway and the upcoming 50s Greenway in the Cully neighborhood. It includes traffic calming (infilling speed bumps to meed current standards) and an enhanced crossing of 42nd Ave.
New Stop Signs
Most intersections in this area are uncontrolled, meaning that neither leg has a stop sign. New stop signs will be added on side streets approaching NE Simpson to help keep people safe. If you see a wooden stake near your property, it might be marking the location of a new sign.
Parking Setback Updates
Daylighting approaches to intersections and pedestrian crossings by setting back on-street parking is current best practice in cities across the country. In Oregon, state law allows cities to set their own regulations regarding intersection approaches. In the past, Portland has not required daylighting intersections. As part of this project, some new No Parking signs will be installed to improve visibility and safety.
42nd Ave Crossing
A new marked crossing of 42nd at Simpson Ct/Ainsworth St will make it easier and safer to cross the street.
Speed Bump Infill
Simpson already has some speed bumps, but they are spaced further apart from what our current standards recommend. To help keep speeds slow and comfortable, new speed bumps will be added.
