(May 24, 2016) Neighborhood Greenways are streets that prioritize people walking and bicycling and are the backbone of Portland's bicycle network. SE Clinton St has been a Neighborhood Greenway for over 20 years. The City of Portland Bureau of Transportation recently implemented updates to address increased auto volume and speed issues that were eroding the greenway's safety and comfort as part of the Clinton Neighborhood Greenway Enhancement Project.
Test traffic calming devices were installed in three locations along SE Clinton, including median traffic diverter at SE 17th Ave, a semi-diverter at SE 32nd Ave and a one-way northbound conversion on SE 34th Ave. Staff has been gathering data, including traffic counts, to evaluate the effectiveness of the changes. A user-survey will also help staff and decision-makers determine if the changes should be made permanent and if additional modifications are needed to achieve necessary traffic speed and volume results.
Please take our evaluation survey by June, 2016 if you live, work or play near the project area and use SE Clinton. If you live on SE Clinton St, you can also request a Neighborhood Greenway Yard sign for your lawn.
