Project Details

Lombard Multimodal Safety Project

Design Phase

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


​This project will improve safety for cars, bicyclists and pedestrians along North Lombard, specifically between N Fiske Ave and N Boston Ave. A reduction in travel lanes and removal of parking will begin at N Newman Avenue to N Boston Ave to best accommodate a new center turn lane and bike lanes. The project also includes many pedestrian improvements throughout the corridor such as new crossings, audible pedestrian signals and ADA ramps.

Impacts

Traffic Impact

​Typical traffic impacts may include temporary lane closures and traffic control with flaggers. Information will be made available prior to the start of construction.

Meetings and Events

​An in-person and online community open house was held on March 13, 2019. An additional community event will be held prior to construction.

Schedule

​This project is currently being designed. Construction is expected to take place from 2021 to 2022. More information on the anticipated schedule and impacts will be made available prior to the start of construction.

About

This project will improve safety for all modes along US30 BY/N Lombard Street between N Fiske Ave and N Boston Ave. A reduction in travel lanes and parking will begin at N Newman Avenue to N Boston Ave to accommodate a new center turn lane and bike lanes.

This project will improve safety along US30 BY/Lombard, which is currently ranked as 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. The project’s elements include adding a median with turning lane, bike lanes, and updated pedestrian crossings. The project is being designed and constructed by ODOT. The Portland Bureau of Transportation is designing and constructing traffic signal and ADA curb ramp improvements at the intersection of US30 BY/N Lombard Street and Fenwick Ave.
