OPEN HOUSE on Sullivan’s Crossing: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5TH
PBOT is planning to construct a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Interstate 84 and the Union Pacific Railroad to better connect the rapidly growing Lloyd and Central Eastside Industrial districts. The bridge, called for in the Central City 2035 Plan as part of a larger “Green Loop,” is intended to provide a safer, more convenient connection for people walking and cycling between the two bustling areas. The bridge most likely will be located along the NE 7th Avenue alignment to best serve the geographic centers of both districts, link to existing and planned bike routes, and reduce conflicts with truck traffic. The nearest existing connections, on NE Grand Avenue and NE 12th Avenue, are substandard for pedestrian/bicycle use and have significant conflicts with freight and automobile traffic.Event Location: Oregon Metro, 2nd floor lobby (600 NE Grand Ave, 97232)Date and Time: December 5th, 4-6:30pmSnacks provided.
Join PBOT to learn more about Sullivan’s Crossing, and provide feedback on:· Different alignment options for the new I-84 crossing· Possible bridge types· Potential traffic changes to Lloyd Boulevard and nearby intersections
