Tonight, the community will learn more about an exciting suite of projects that will make bicycling in North Portland more viable, convenient, and safe.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation will hold the first of two public open houses for their “Going to the River” project. The project, which includes a new multi-use path on N Going Street to Swan Island and new neighborhood greenways on N. Michigan, N. Blandena, and N. Going, was awarded $2.3 million in federal funding back in February. (For an in-depth look at the project, see our story from January.)
Combined with recently completed neighborhood greenways in the area (like N. Concord) and improvements coming to the Bryant Bridge and to Rosa Parks Way, people who ride near the I-5 corridor of North Portland are enjoying a much-needed boost in bikeway connections.
PBOT has planned two open houses for the Going to the River project. The first will present an overview on neighborhood greenways and existing conditions and the second meeting will present specific improvements based (in part) on community feedback. Details for both meetings are below:
- First meeting: Wednesday, June 1, 2011
Second meeting: Wednesday, June, 15, 2011
Humboldt Elementary School (4915 N. Gantenbein Ave)
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
