1120 SW Fifth Ave, Suite 1331, Portland, OR 97204
Multiple bus lines use Jeﬀerson to connect from the Hawthorne Bridge to Goose Hollow. This street is also a critical west connection through downtown for people driving.
PBOT will improve transit speed and reliability by adding a bus only lane approaching Collins Circle on Jeﬀerson, while maintaining a buﬀered bike lane. PBOT will also add a bus priority signal treatment at Jeﬀerson at 18th Avenue.
Draft concept for SW Jefferson approaching SW 18th Avenue (Collins Circle).
By getting buses out of the vehicle lane, PBOT will also reduce queuing for drivers heading to the freeway.
PBOT will improve Jeﬀerson from 15th Avenue to Naito Parkway and SW Columbia from 13th Avenue to Naito Parkway in future project phases.
BUSINESS ACCESS & TRANSIT LANES Transit priority BAT lanes on Jeﬀerson and will allow the buses to access and get through downtown, relieving a major pinch point in the transit system.
BIKE LANE Moving the bike lane to the curb on Jeﬀerson and adding a buﬀer will improve comfort and safety.
PEOPLE MOVING CAPACITY Changes in street design would increase the number of people that the street could accommodate. To accommodate these improvements, PBOT will remove parking from the north side of the street.
