I love receiving dispatches about bike stuff from readers in parts of town that I don't often get to myself. I rely on your eyes and ears to help me cover more than just the central city.
Case in point is reader Gretchin Lair. She noticed some lane re-striping and a new bike lane on an intersection she frequents in outer southeast Portland so she snapped a few photos and shared her thoughts.
Take it away Gretchin:
"I noticed new bike lane markings at the intersection of SE 112th & Powell. They're short bike lanes, lasting for about a block on either side of the intersection, and they exist in both directions. Additionally, a left turn lane has been added in both directions.
