#17 - Better Naito Forever

Naito Parkway serves as a critical transportation spine along the west side of the Willamette. This project will implement a year-round version of “Better Naito,” providing a two-way cycletrack and sidewalk along the west side of Waterfront Park. Signal upgrades and advanced vehicle detection will facilitate auto access to I-5 via the Morrison Bridge.

Better Naito Forever renderingDRIVING?
More efficient traffic signals - The project will upgrade traffic signals to detect and dynamically adjust to vehicle queues, minimizing impacts to northbound drivers.

WALKING?
Dedicated pedestrian routes - The concept includes sidewalks to connect the gaps between existing sidewalks on the west side of Waterfront Park as well as shorter crossing of Naito.

BIKING OR SCOOTERING?
Permanent, dedicated bike facilities – This project will create a permanent two-way cycletrack for cycling and scooting by converting one of the right-hand northbound auto lanes.

VISITING WATERFRONT PARK?
The new walking and biking facilities will allow easy, accessible access to Waterfront Park events such as Cinco de Mayo and Rose Fest.

PROJECT SCHEDULE?
Currently in design, construction scheduled for 2020
