The Portland Bureau of Transportation is proposing to build the N Greeley Multi-Use Path, a two-way, one-mile path on the east side of N Greeley Avenue from N Going Street to N Interstate Avenue. The two-way bicycle and pedestrian facility will be protected from vehicle traffic with continuous concrete barriers. The project will also include repaving the entire width of N Greeley through the project area.
N Greeley Avenue is a busy, high-speed road with heavy freight vehicle traffic. This project will protect cyclists and pedestrians behind a continuous concrete barrier connecting North Portland neighborhoods and businesses with the Rose Quarter. In addition, the project will widen the outside lanes to better accommodate truck traffic and increase the buffer between opposing traffic lanes.
N Going St: Cyclists will move diagonally across the intersection with a new bike signal.
At the south end of the project, the continuous concrete barrier will tie in to the existing barrier.
Proposed cross section includes a 11.5-12’ multi-use path, a 12’ northbound travel lane, two 10.5’ travel lanes, and a 12-13’ southbound travel lane.
Design will take place during 2017 and 2018; construction is scheduled for Summer 2019.
The project has two funding sources: a City Council-approved Major Maintenance Set-Aside and Heavy Vehicle Use Taxes.
