PBOT News: Upcoming speed bump construction on Tillamook Neighborhood Greenway

Posted by on July 8th, 2019 at 10:36 am

Note: This is part of a larger project on Tillamook that we covered back in February.

Speed bumps are scheduled for construction on NE Tillamook on July 9 and July 10 between NE 16th and 28th. The road will be closed to through traffic with local access only during construction. The schedule may change due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. The project website will be updated with information about changes to the schedule.

Please do not bike through the construction zone – use NE Hancock or NE Thompson, or walk your bike on the sidewalk.

Speedbumps are included in this project because vehicle speeds on Tillamook are currently higher than the speeds recommended by the operational performance guidelines set by Portland’s Neighborhood Greenway Assessment Report. We are also including speed bumps in this project because we will be turning stop signs on Tillamook to favor the greenway. While turning the stop signs allows people walking and biking to travel more efficiently along the greenway, it can also attract people to drive on the greenway. The speed bumps help discourage driving on the greenway.

Please visit our project webpage for more information about the Tillamook Neighborhood Greenway Enhancement Project] and be in touch if you have any questions.
