New bike lanes on SW Lombard. (Photos: Jim Parsons)
It was a bit of a saga, but bike lanes have finally been installed on a stretch of SW Lombard Avenue in Beaverton (the project also came with some on-street parking removal). After the Beaverton Traffic Commission said no to the project back in April, advocates rallied and made their case to City Council. Last month, the Council voted 5-0 in favor of the bike lanes.
Our West Side correspondent and photographer Jim Parsons was on the scene when crews installed the bike lanes last week. Here are some of his photos (see them all here).
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
