Transforming Northwest Portland
Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 12:00pm

This event is presented by the Portland Bureau of Transportation, and hosted at Portland State University with support from the Transportation Research & Education Center (TREC) and the PSU Bike Hub.

Presenters: Nicole Peirce, Capitol Project Manager, Scott Cohen, Capitol Project Manager, Zef Wagner, Transportation Planner

As quadrants go, Northwest Portland is like the sun –  dense, shiny and hard for people to bike through.  But not for long!

Our speakers will cover:

  • the NW 20s Neighborhood Greenway;
  • the NW Flanders Bridge & Neighborhood Greenway; 
  • the NW in Motion initiative;
  • the extension of TriMet Line 24; and
  • other projects in progress.

Come and prep for the NW Transportation Open House   (5-7 pm at Chown Hardware, 1605 NW Everett St), or come hear what’s happening if you can’t make the evening event.
