Project-Details





Lombard Multimodal Safety Project

Construction Phase

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


​​​Join our online open house in English and Español until January 31.​

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

North Lombard Street will remain open, but expect lane closures that could cause delays.

General work direction and phasing:
Work on the north side of North Lombard Street will begin at North Fiske Avenue and head east. When the north side is complete, work on the south side of North Lombard Street will begin at North Boston Avenue and head west. 

• Winter 2021: 
Vehicles and freight: Intermittent vehicle lane closures during traffic signal work. One lane in each direction will remain open to allow for through-traffic.
Bicycles: Cyclists may share the lane with vehicles, walk along sidewalks, or use a neighborhood greenway. 
Pedestrians: Sidewalks will remain open, with some detours. 
All modes: Allow extra time when traveling and follow all signs and flaggers for safety.

• Spring 2021 through fall 2021: 
Vehicles and freight: One lane in each direction will remain open to allow for through-traffic, traffic lanes will shift. 
Bicycles: Cyclists may share the lane with vehicles, walk along sidewalks, or use a neighborhood greenway. 
Pedestrians: Sidewalks will remain open, with some detours. 
All modes: Allow extra time when traveling and follow all signs and flaggers for safety.


• Spring through summer 2022: 
Vehicles and freight: Temporary lane shifts during repaving.
Bicycles: Cyclists may share the lane with vehicles, walk along sidewalks, or use a neighborhood greenway. 
Pedestrians: Sidewalks will remain open, with some detours. 
All modes: Allow extra time when traveling and follow all signs and flaggers for safety.

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

Join our online open house in English and Español ​until January 31. You'll find out what to expect during construction, and how travelers will benefit once the work is complete.

We also held in-person and online open houses in March 2019 and January 2020. 

Schedule

Construction is expected from January 2021 through summer 2022.

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.

Benefits

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.

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.
