NW Broadway Bus/Bike Lane Improvements

What’s happening now?

The project team is currently refining concepts to 15% design plans and preparing for open houses in February 2020.

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.

View the 2018 conceptual design here. Note this conceptual design is currently being refined and a 15% design plan will be available for public review in early 2020.

Current Status: Design

Construction: Anticipated Fall 2020
