City of Portland maintenance crews have completed installation of two more on-street bike parking “corrals,” bringing the total citywide to 17.
We covered the new parking in more detail yesterday before they were installed. This morning, I swung by with my camera to take a closer look.
In front of Lincoln Restaurant, PBOT has installed a corral with six staples. That’s enough for 12 bicycles:
Across the street, in front of Pix Patisserie and the Fifth Quadrant pub, PBOT has opted for a larger corral that has 10 staples and enough capacity for 20 bicycles:
This new parking (combined with what’s already there), will do wonders for customers of these eating establishments, will make biking in the area more enjoyable, and will add nicely the overall vibe of this bustling bicycle district.
