As seen just south of SW Whitaker St. (Photos: Jim Parsons)
As we reported back in September, PBOT has repaved SW Barbur Blvd just south of downtown Portland. As part of that project, they’ve widened the bike lanes and have painted a striped buffer. The new buffered lanes are about 3/4 of a mile long and go from SW Caruthers near I-405 south to SW Lane at Naito.
The new lanes were completed late last month. Our roving correspondent Jim Parsons snapped a few photos…
Here’s the view (looking north towards downtown) just south of Pennoyer:
Looking south, just south of Woods St.:
SW Barbur is a main artery for north-south travel. The auto speeds are high, so any bit of extra width and paint for the bike lane is a good thing.
