What’s happening now?
Following public feedback received on the project at multiple events between April and September 2019, PBOT has prepared a report summarizing feedback and changes to the design. Please review the summary report in conjunction with the proposed design. We made three major changes to the originally proposed design:
- NE Halsey Street between 47th and 57th avenues will be modified to remove parking on both sides of the street to provide three 12-foot-wide lanes: one travel lane in each direction and one center turn lane.
- NE 57th Avenue south of NE Halsey Street will not be converted to a one-way street; it will remain a two-way street. During peak morning and evening commute times, the traffic signal will allow northbound traffic to enter NE Halsey Street with every other cycle.
- The 60s Bikeway alignment north of NE Hancock Street will now continue north on NE 61st Avenue instead of jogging west to NE 60th Avenue.

- Make the intersection of NE Halsey Street and NE 47th Avenue safer with a new traffic signal and dedicated turn lanes.
- Widen the sidewalk on NE 60th Avenue between NE Halsey Street and the NE 60th Avenue MAX Station.
