Meeting for Greenway Project Tomorrow Night

Bryant-Holman Connector Neighborhood Greenway Safety Project Meeting
Thursday, Aug. 11th 6-8 pm
Rosemont Court Community Room
597 N Dekum Street

Tomorrow night, Thursday, Aug. 11th the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) will host the first of two open house meetings to discuss the Bryant-Holman Connector Neighborhood Greenway Safety project.  According to the PBOT the purpose of the first meeting is to provide an overview of neighborhood greenways, review existing traffic conditions on the routes, and hear your feedback. City staff will return for a second meeting on Thursday, September 8th to present recommendations on specific improvements.

This project will create family friendly connection between all of these new routes to create a consistent, low-stress network between North and Northeast Portland that connects schools, parks, and businesses with low-stress, family-friendly streets.

The overall goal of this project, highlighted on a map provided by the city, is to:

  • Reduce speeds on residential streets
  • Minimize cut-through traffic on local streets
  • Ensure safe crossings of busy streets for pedestrians and bicycle riders
  • Provide safe and convenient access to schools, parks, and local businesses

For questions about the public meetings, please contact Kyle Chisek at 503-823-7041 or kyle.chisek@portlandoregon.gov.
