It’s an anomaly in Southeast Portland’s parking wars: a group of homeowners is asking the City of Portland to please remove a row of auto parking spaces from their street.

They’d rather have a bike lane, the group says. But it’s not yet clear whether their request will be granted.

“It’s a street where nobody’s been killed, but many, many near misses,” said Mark Zahner of the street where he lives, 34th Avenue between Clinton and Division streets. “We feel like it’s only a matter of time.”

Great news for one of Portland’s busiest bikeways… After nearly three years since it was first announced, the Bureau of Transportation is set to begin installing elements of their Clinton Street Bike Boulevard Enhancement Project.

PBOT staffer Jeff Smith came to the Bicycle Advisory Committee meeting on Tuesday to share more about what you can expect to see on Clinton Street in the coming months and to explain the intent behind the project. (more…)

As part of my daily work here at BikePortland, I track a lot of projects. The other day, prompted by a question from reader Jessica Roberts, I began to think about all the bike projects that are currently delayed and languishing for one reason or another.

Below are updates on five such projects. Each of them has been planned, discussed, and promised, but none of them have broken ground.

More of what’s in store for SE Clinton bike street makeover

“Bike Flags” are one of several
concepts the city hopes will
help identify SE Clinton as a
bike priority street.

The City of Portland has shared more of the design elements they’re hoping to bring to Clinton Street as part of their Clinton Street Bike Boulevard Enhancement Project.

Earlier this month, we shared a few peeks of some of the artistic signs, pavement markings, and new bike parking designs slated to appear on the popular bike street.

The Bureau of Transportation is working with local artists to put a new type of aesthetic spin on the street in order to strengthen its identity as a bicycles priority street. Here’s what looks like it could become a logo for the all-new Clinton Street.

And here are more of the design elements under consideration:

The City has also uploaded maps of the sections of Clinton where these design elements would be placed. See those maps and learn more about the project on PBOT’s Clinton Street Bicycle Boulevard Enhancement Project website.
