Project description and background

This project will improve transit and bicycling along this important north-south corridor. Improvements include:

  • Protected bike lanes between the Broadway Bridge and SW Oak Street, including a new northbound bike lane

  • Transit priority treatments to benefit the 3,335 people who ride TriMet’s Line 17 into the central city, with traffic signal upgrades and a reroute to the transit mall

Separate from this project, in 2021 PBOT will install a new traffic signal at NW Flanders Street and NW Broadway Street as part of the Flanders Neighborhood Greenway. In 2022, PBOT will rebuild the existing traffic signal at NW Broadway Street and NW Glisan Street to improve safety.

Current Status: Design

Construction: Anticipated Summer 2020
