This project will improve safety an access to transit for two sites in Portland along Barbur Boulevard and three sites in Tigard on OR 99W/Pacific Highway, which were selected by Trimet. The project’s elements include sidewalk infill, enhanced pedestrian crossings, bus pads, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. As these sites are located on an ODOT highway, the project is being designed and constructed by ODOT.
The two Portland locations are on SW Barbur Blvd at SW Lane Street, where northbound Barbur Boulevard splits from SW Naito Parkway, and on the east side of SW Barbur Blvd just north of the intersection with SW 53rd Ave.
The three Tigard locations are on SW Commercial Street between SW Lincoln Ave and SW Main Street underneath the OR 99W/Pacific Highway overpass, on the west side of OR 99W/Pacific Highway at Bull Mountain Road, and on the east side of OR 99W/Pacific Highway between SW Naeve Street and SW Beef Bend Road.

By making it easier and safer to access the bus, this project will make transit usage more attractive. In particular, this project will increase access to transit for people with disabilities living and working near OR 99W/Barbur Boulevard/Pacific Highway West.
What Problem Will This
- Basic pedestrian access, safety and accessibility features are missing in many parts of this corridor, especially near bus stops.
- People with disabilities living and working in the corridor are not able to use all the bus stops due to a lack of ramps, concrete landing pads, sidewalks, and safe crossings.
