Lombard Multimodal Safety Project

Construction Phase

Region 1: Portland metro and Hood River County (Portland, Multnomah)


​​​​​​​​​This project will improve safety and travel-time predictability for people walking, biking, rolling, taking transit, driving and moving freight along North Lombard Street between North Fiske Avenue and North Boston Avenue. This will be accomplished by reducing travel lanes to one lane in each direction and adding a center turn lane, buffered bike lanes, pedestrian-activated crossings, updated traffic signals, curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, and wider vehicle lanes for this designated freight route. North Lombard will also be repaved in summer 2022.​​ 

Impacts

Traffic Impact

Expect intermittent impacts to your travel, detailed below. Allow extra time when traveling and follow all signs and flaggers for safety.

Currently, most construction impacts are between North Boston Avenue and North Wabash Avenue:
  • Vehicles and freight: Traffic will still flow in both directions during construction, with occasional lane closures and delays. Later this spring, crews will reduce and shift vehicle lanes to make room for construction activities.
  • Biking: Share the lane with vehicles, walk bikes along sidewalks, or use a neighborhood greenway such as North Bryant Street. Bike lanes will open at project completion.
  • Walking, rolling and accessing transit: There may be guided detour paths near corners as accessible ramps are installed.
As work progresses on the north side of North Lombard Street, crews will move west toward North Fiske Avenue.

This image shows the three stages of construction phasing from 2021 to 2022, working from north, to south, to the center turn lane.

Construction Impacts

We’ll do most of the work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, but we’ll do the heavier work — such as installing traffic signals and repaving — at night, when impacts will affect fewer travelers (and be safer for workers).

We’ve received a noise variance from the City of Portland to do limited work between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. The noise concerns hotline is 503-294-2125. This number is available for nearby residents and businesses to help resolve any noise-related concerns 24 hours a day.

Meetings and Events

We held in-person and online open houses in March 2019 and January 2020, and an online open house in January 2021. ODOT is always listening to community members and considering their feedback. If you missed the open houses but would like to submit a comment, contact Ellen Sweeney at ellen.sweeney@odot.state.or.us.​

Schedule

Construction is expected from January 2021 through summer 2022, with a break from mid-November through December 2021.​

About

This project will build safety and travel-time predictability improvements for people walking, biking, rolling, taking transit, driving, and moving freight along North Lombard Street between North Fiske Avenue and North Boston Avenue. This will be accomplished by reducing travel lanes to one lane in each direction and adding a center turn lane, buffered bike lanes, pedestrian-activated crossings, updated traffic signals, curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, and wider vehicle lanes for this designated freight route. North Lombard will also be repaved in summer 2022, between North Newman Avenue to North Boston Avenue.

North Lombard Street/U.S. 30 Bypass is the 11th highest crash corridor in the city of Portland based on the frequency of both fatal and serious, near-fatal crashes for all types of road users.

ODOT is designing and constructing the project. The Portland Bureau of Transportation is designing and constructing traffic signal and ADA curb ramp improvements at the intersection of North Lombard Street/U.S. 30 Bypass and North Fenwick Avenue.

What Problem Will This Improve?

  • Improved travel-time predictability for vehicles and freight by adding a turn lane to reduce stopped vehicles and wider vehicle lanes for this designated freight route.
  • Safety for all users by reducing fatal and serious crashes by adding a center turn lane.
  • Basic pedestrian access, safety and accessibility features at many intersections.
  • Pedestrian-activated crossings and curb ramps to improve safety and accessibility for all travelers.
