News Advisory: Open Houses Begin March 13 for ‘20s Bikeway Project; major addition to city's bike network

(March 6, 2014) – Portlanders will have three opportunities to attend open houses in mid-March to help the Portland Bureau of Transportation design the next major expansion of the city’s bicycle network. 

The NE/SE 20s Bikeway Project will extend 9.1 miles from the northern to southern city limits,  generally between 26th and 29th avenues.  It will provide a continuous bicycle connection through 12 neighborhoods, link 23 east-west bikeways and provide access to 12 schools and 14 parks within a quarter mile of the route.   The exact alignment will be determined with input from the public.

The project is funded by a $2.4 million federal grant to cover both design and construction, which is set to occur in 2015.   Since last summer, the transportation bureau has been working with a stakeholder advisory group to sort through numerous difficult design issues such as route alignment and tradeoffs with on-street parking.  The project is now ready to share initial ideas with the larger community and get feedback at these open houses. 

The open houses are:

Thursday, March 13
Fremont United Methodist Church, 2620 NE Fremont Avenue
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Monday, March 17th
Cleveland High School, 3400 SE 26th Avenue
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Tuesday, March 18th
Central Catholic High School, 2401 SE Stark Street
6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The public is invited to stop by any time during the open houses to review and comment on design proposals and speak with project staff.   Visit:
