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).
