Project-Details





Lombard Multimodal Safety Project

Design Phase

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


​This project will improve safety for drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users and using mobility devices (such as wheelchairs) along North Lombard between N Fiske Ave and N Boston Ave. A reduction in travel lanes and removal of parking will begin at N Newman Avenue and continue to N Boston Ave to accommodate a new center turn lane and bike lanes.

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.

Construction Impacts

​​While most of the construction work will occur during the day, ODOT has selected some tasks to do at night, when it's safer for workers and the traveling public. To safely update traffic signals and repave the road, ODOT is seeking a noise variance to work at night between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Prior to construction, a noise hotline number will be sent out to nearby residents and businesses that can be used to help resolve any noise-related concerns 24-hours a day.

As part of the noise permit process, ODOT will present the noise application to the City of Portland Noise Board on June 11, 2020. If you have comments about this project and would like those taken into consideration by the noise review board, you can submit comments to Ellen by June 10 at ellen.sweeney@odot.state.or.us or 503-731-8230 or attend this virtual meeting:

Meetings and Events

​ODOT has held two in-person community open houses with two accompanying online open houses. The first open house was held on March 13, 2019 and the second was January 29, 2020. 

We will host another community event will be held before construction begins, which will have details on what to expect during the work.

ODOT is always listening to and considering the feedback from community members. If you miss these opportunities to engage with the project team but would like to submit a comment, contact Ellen at ellen.sweeney@odot.state.or.us.

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 North Lombard Street/US30 BY 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 includes adding a median with turning lane, bike lanes, and updated pedestrian crossings. The project is being designed and constructed by ODOT.
