The Portland Bureau of Transportation continues their expansion of low-stress bike streets in North Portland with a neighborhood meeting for the Bryant-Holman Connector project tonight.
The meeting will discuss a new neighborhood greenway proposal that would connect the Woodlawn and Arbor Lodge neighborhoods via North Bryant Street. This project would tie in with existing neighborhood greenways on N. Concord, Michigan (coming soon) and Bryant to the west and N. Holman to the east. It would also help highlight the underutilized and somewhat neglected Bryant Street biking and walking bridge that crosses over I-5.
Here's more from PBOT:
"This network will help create safe routes to Woodlawn, Ockley Green, Chief Joseph, Beach, and Humboldt Schools. In addition, these routes will improve safe walking and biking access to Woodlawn Park, Arbor Lodge Park, and Peninsula Park. Access to key transit hubs and businesses on Dekum, Martin Luther King, Interstate, and Lombard will also be improved."
As per usual, PBOT will hold two meetings for this project. The first will give an overview of neighborhood greenways, share data on existing traffic conditions, and hear public feedback. Then, City staff will come back a few weeks later (on September 8th) for a second meeting to present their plans for specific improvements.
If you live, work, or ride in this area of North Portland, consider coming to this meeting and sharing your input on this project.
