PBOT installs four more bike corrals

The Portland Bureau of Transportation is unveiling four new on-street bike parking corrals today and tomorrow.

PBOT has been working with the business community along Lower East Burnside to increase the amount of bicycle parking for customers. This led to corrals are being installed outside Rontoms, Doug Fir Lounge and Grendel’s Coffee House on East Burnside between SE Sixth and Ninth avenues.

The fourth bicycle corral is located off the Spokane Street bike boulevard outside of Bertie Lou’s Cafe at SE Spokane and SE 17th. The Spokane Street bike boulevard is currently under construction.

With the completion of these four facilities, the City of Portland now boasts a total of 40 on-street corrals that provide 790 bicycle parking spaces.

All on-street bike corrals are installed with the support and approval of the adjacent business and property owners. More information about PBOT’s On-Street Bike Parking Corrals can be found online.
