Fixing Our Streets Southwest Bike Lanes Project

What’s happening now?

We are working on two bike network enhancement projects:

A. SW 35th between SW Ridge and SW Arnold (jump to more information about this project) 

B. SW 45th between SW Pendleton and SW Nevada (jump to more information about this project) 


 

A. SW 35th between SW Ridge and SW Arnold 

Project Background and Description:

This project will reorganize the road to create protected bike lanes that connect neighborhoods to Jackson Middle School and future biking connections. An application to reduce the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph is being submitted for review to the Oregon Department of Transportation. The project was first identified in the Portland Bike Plan for 2030 (created in 2010). It has been prioritized for implementation in the draft of the Southwest in Motion plan.
