Continuing on their program to create more on-street bike parking facilities, the Maintenance Division of the City of Portland Office of Transportation began work today installing a new bike corral in North Portland.
The location is the southwest corner of the intersection of N. Killingsworth and N. Williams. This is the same location that I reported about a few weeks ago where the adjacent business owner, Ethos Music (the non-profit founded by City Council candidate Charles Lewis), was told the project was held up by design issues.
Well it looks like PDOT has figured out those design issues. This facility has solid metal posts with reflective tape and a chained cable strung between.
The racks are expected to be installed tomorrow. Here are a few more photos.
Full report and more photos to come.
