NW Front Avenue - Naito Parkway LID

please click for a higher resolution

Formed by City Council on March 15th, 2017. this LID is intended to improve the safety for pedestrians along NW Naito. This safety project will further extend the bike lanes to just south of Terminal 1, while also constructing eight (8) ADA-compliant curb ramps and partially rebuilding three (3) traffic signals at NW 9th Avenue, NW 15th Avenue and NW 17th Avenue.

NW Naito has substandard pedestrian facilities, with missing sidewalks, ADA ramps and, few safe places to cross the street. PBOT believes that fixing these deficiencies is important for people walking, rolling and accessing transit.

A Notice to Proceed for construction was issued on October 29, 2018.

Streets include:

  • NW Front Avenue from the north property line of 2220 NW Front Avenue to NW 15th Avenue
  • NW Naito Parkway from NW 15th Avenue to NW 9th Avenue

The property owner of 2035 NW Front Avenue is providing supplemental funding for this project with most costs funded by the Portland Bureau of Transportation.  If you have any questions about this project, please contact Local Improvement District Administrator and Project Manager Andrew Aebi.
