Get excited about the North Greeley bikeway project as it nears completion

Looking north on North Greeley from the Adidas pedestrian bridge.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) There’s been significant progress on the North Greeley Avenue bikeway project since the last time we checked in. Much of the bikeway between Willamette and Going is completed. All that remains is to turn on the new bike traffic signals, finish important crossing treatments, and a few other details. I rolled over last weekend for a closer look and I’m convinced: When complete, this bikeway w...

North Greeley path shapes up while neighborhood group says progress is on hold

Nice new path south of Willamette Blvd.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The N Greeley bikeway project is tantalizingly close to being finished. About a week ago I rode a new section of the separated bike path that begins south of North Willamette Blvd. As you can see in the photos, it’s very nice. Anticipation of this new connection between the popular Willamette Boulevard neighborhood greenway and the bike lanes on North Interstate Avenue, is high. It’s not often we get 1.5 miles of un...

Checking in on NE 47th, Greeley protected bike lane projects

NE 47th after a complete rebuild with new concrete, planted buffer, and new multi-use path. (Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) View north from Columbia Blvd before the project started.(Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) It’s winter doldrums not just for our psyches here in Portland, but also for our transportation bureau’s construction season. Two projects that didn’t get completed before the winter shut-down have big implications for bicycle users: new separated bike paths on NE 47th a...

But wait, there’s more: Greeley protected path will continue to Willamette Blvd

Bike lanes adjacent to Adidas North America headquarters on N Greeley Ave will be shifted to the west (left). (Photo: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) If you appreciate the new protected bike path on North Greeley Avenue between Interstate and North Going, you’ll be interested to know that by the end of this summer it could extend all the way to North Willamette Blvd. In September 2019 we reported that apparel brand Adidas — whose North American headquarters are located on Greeley — would help ...

The North Greeley separated bike path is finally open!

(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) It has been a long time coming but I am happy to say that the North Greeley Avenue bike path is open. I shared a sneak peek a few weeks ago so I won’t bore you with details again, but since that post the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has finished the striping and, more importantly, the bike signal at the north end. But first, a few more photos of the path in all its glory (last time I was there the striping wasn’t done): Now, about that s...

PBOT: North Greeley bike path to be completed mid-summer

Status of the forthcoming path as of this past April. This man is biking in what will soon be the southbound bike lane separated by a concrete barrier. (Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The Portland Bureau of Transportation announced that they’ll fully close North Greeley Avenue for five days next week in order to complete a project that will repave the street and add a new protected bike path. Outdated sign. (Photo taken in April) This $1.8 million project was first planned over thre...

Editorial: The tragedy of North Greeley Avenue

The Greeley Freeway. Yesterday’s collision occurred near the rear of that white truck on the left. (Note: Red line is where concrete jersey-barrier protected lane is slated to be built.)(Photo: J. Maus/BikePortland) Yesterday morning around 9:00 am two people died in a collision on North Greeley Avenue. Police say one of the victims, the driver of a sedan, crossed the centerline. That person’s car was hit by another driver and both people in the sedan died as a result of the impact. While no bi...

PBOT says Greeley Ave bikeway will be built this summer

Auto users will get about 45 feet of space on Greeley. Bicycle users will get 12 feet. A concrete jersey barrier will separate them from each other.(Graphic: PBOT) At long last the construction of a new bikeway on North Greeley Avenue is imminent. At least we hope it is. Project location. At their meeting this week Portland City Council is poised to authorize a contract for the construction of the Greeley Multi-Use Path project.

Greeley bike path project delayed again, not expected until spring 2019

Greeley looking south. Red line is location of future bike path.(Photo: Jonathan Maus) Project location. (Map: PBOT) Initially slated for spring 2017, a project that will create a protected bike path on Greeley Avenue in north Portland has been delayed again and isn’t expect to be built until spring 2019. The Portland Bureau of Transportation plans to piggyback on a repaving project on Greeley between Interstate and Going in order to create the new bikeway. The current street cross-section o...

Careless driving, other charges possible in serious injury collision on N Greeley at I-5

A woman checks over her shoulder before merging across the on-ramp where Greeley funnels into I-5.(Photos: J. Maus/BikePortland) A person riding a bike on North Greeley was struck by a person driving a car today around 1:45 pm. The collision happened — surprise, surprise! — where the unprotected bike lane crosses over a busy, high-speed freeway onramp to I-5 where people often drive well over 50 mph. It’s a collision that should have never happened. A Portland Bureau of Transportation pro...

Plastic wands installed to protect bicycle users on NE Multnomah, NE 1st, and N Greeley

Newly installed plastic wands create some physical protection for a bike lane on North Greeley Avenue just south of the Adidas campus.(Photos: J. Maus/BikePortland) The Portland Bureau of Transportation is on a bit of a plastic wand binge. In the past week we’ve learned of white wands (a.k.a. delineators, plastic bollards, candlesticks) going up in the Lloyd District, near the Convention Center, and on Greeley near the Adidas campus in north Portland. My first thought was that this wa...

In two separate events, north Portlanders will seek attention for dangerous streets

Flyer for tomorrow’s rally. North Portlanders are tired of waiting for the City or advocacy groups to save them from the deadly streets in their front yards. They’re taking matters into their own hands by elevating voices of vulnerable road users and demanding attention for their concerns. Two events in the coming week — one from the Arbor Lodge and Overlook neighborhood associations and one from the St. Johns Neighborhood Association — will focus on dangerous streets where motor vehicle users...

PBOT planning jersey-barrier protected bikeway on North Greeley Ave

This is what northbound North Greeley Avenue looks like today (can you spot the bicycle rider in this picture?). The future could look very different.(Photos: J. Maus/BikePortland) One of Portland’s scariest places to ride a bicycle is about to be erased from the map and replaced with a new bikeway that is physically protected from motorized vehicle traffic. Purple section would be protected bikeway on east side of Greeley, blue section will have buffered bike lanes. At last night’s m...

Victim of collision at notorious Greeley/I-5 intersection comes forward

The bike lane and the freeway on-ramp on North Greeley where a man was hit on January 27th.(Photo: Google Streetview) A recent collision on North Greeley where it crosses over an on-ramp for the Interstate 5 freeway has thrust concerns about that dangerous intersection back into the spotlight. It’s also a reminder that even when collisions don’t lead to serious injuries or even death they still take a significant toll on victims and the road designs that lead to them still deserve our attentio...
