20’s Bikeway Project open house: March 17

The Portland Bureau of Transportation is undertaking the 20’s Bikeway Project to plan, design and construct safety improvements to a 9.1-mile north-south bicycle route that uses a variety of local residential streets and neighborhood collector streets between NE/SE 26th and 29th Avenues, and runs from NE Lombard Street at the north end of the city to connect to the Springwater Corridor.

This project includes possible bicycle safety improvements in Eastmoreland, and Eastmoreland has a neighborhood representative serving on the project’s stakeholder advisory committee. This committee has met three times since September 2013 to discuss ideas for alignment of the route and potential improvements to make bicycling safer and encourage greater participation.

Three open houses for the 20s Bikeway Project will be held in March to discuss ideas for the alignment of this north-south bicycle route and improvements to make bicycling safer.

The open house focused on the south end of the proposed 20s Bikeway route, which includes Eastmoreland, will be held on Monday, March 17, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Cleveland High School, 3400 SE 26th Avenue.

Two additional open houses, focused on the northern and central segments of the proposed route, will be held:

  • Thursday, March 13, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Fremont United Methodist Church, 2620 NE Fremont St. (north section)
  • Tuesday, March 18, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Central Catholic High School, 2401 SE Stark St. (central section)
