There’s a new “Share the Road” mural coming to southeast Portland. Volunteers working as part of a Community Action Project with the Northwest Service Academy have earned a grant through the Community Cycling Center to paint the mural on the wall of the Hawthorne Auto Clinic at 4307 SE Hawthorne Blvd. According to project directors Sheri Earnshaw and Drew Englehorn, the “main theme will be Share the Road, with images of automobiles, bicycles, pedestrians and mass transit with riders/ drivers showing awareness of each other.”
A truly public project, there will be a series of meetings with community groups to gather ideas on the final imagery. The entire project will take about 3-4 weeks and organizers hope to be working on it during Pedalpalooza in June.
