Just noticed this over at News4Neighbors:
“The City of Portland was awarded a federal grant to develop a comprehensive signing system for Portland’s bikeways. For the past year we have been designing a signing system that will use two types of signs: destination signs and route confirmation signs and markings. We identified more than 70 destinations to which we would like to direct cyclists (Central City map and City-wide Map) (destinations shown in red). Destination signs will be placed at the intersections of all established bikeways and anywhere else a cyclist faces a decision point…We will finish up final sign design by the end of November and will then seek approval from the Oregon Department of Transportation to use these new signs. Assuming all goes well, we hope to install the signs by next winter.”
Read more about the signs and the status of the project on the City of Portland Office of Transportation website. They’ve also got links to sneak peaks of more of the signs (PDF) and informational kiosks that are in the works. Man, those guys are always up to something.
