Safer Streets: Neighborhood Greenways

Neighborhood Greenway

What is it?

Neighborhood Greenways are a network of residential streets that connect schools and parks, while providing access to business and transit. They feature 20 mph speed limits, painted bike markings, traffic calming features, and safer crossings of busy streets.

How does it make a difference?

Neighborhood Greenways use existing residential streets and make them places where people of all ages and abilities feel safe traveling without a car. They form the backbone of the city’s Safe Routes to School network and often run parallel to busier streets, proving a quiet place for families to bike and walk.

Priority Locations:

- Routes identified in the 2030 Bike Plan, East Portland in Motion, and Southwest in Motion
- Ability to support citywide Portland Comprehensive Plan goals, including Healthy Connected Communities, and the Climate Action Plan
