PBOT News: Upcoming speed bump construction on Tillamook Neighborhood Greenway

PBOT News 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.

Design for Tillamook and 21st has changed to make the bike route more direct.

The City of Portland plans to get started on $150,000 worth of changes to NE Tillamook Street this spring. If all goes according to plan, this major east-west bike route will be much less inviting for car users and much more inviting for bicycle users between Flint and 28th.

Detail of design proposed at Tillamook and 21st.

There’s more good news for inner northeast Portland bikeways: In addition to the new Sullivan’s Crossing Bridge over I-84 and a (potentially) revolutionary new neighborhood greenway on NE 7th, the Bureau of Transportation is planning to update and enhance the bikeway on Tillamook.

As a wise film character once said, life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

While you’ve been sleeping, guerrilla bikeway artist Dawn Furstenberg has been hard at work to remind you of that fact.

Perhaps you’ve ridden down Clinton or Tillamook a million times, your eyes looking straight ahead. Your mind is wandering — thinking about what you’re going to cook for dinner or which film Hollywood Theater should play in 70mm next. Then you start to wonder, “what does 70mm really mean anyway? And, “did I remember to marinate the tempeh?” And just like that, your commute is over.
