Neighborhoods look at bikeway connections

City officials are asking for the public's help in designing the next major expansion of Portland's bicycle network.

Portland Bureau of Transportation's "Northeast/Southeast 20s Bikeway Project" will extend 9.1 miles from the northern to southern city limits, generally between 26th and 29th avenues.

It will provide a continuous bicycle connection through 12 neighborhoods, link 23 east-west bikeways and provide access to 12 schools and 14 parks within a quarter mile of the route. Public input will help determine the exact alignment.

A $2.4 million federal grant funds the project's design and construction, which is set for next year. PBOT officials have worked with a stakeholder advisory group since last year to sort through issues like route alignment and tradeoffs with on-street parking.

The public will now get a look at the initial ideas an provide feedback.

The open houses are set for 6 to 8:30 p.m.:

• Thursday, March 13, Fremont United Methodist Church, 2620 N.E. Fremont Ave.

• Monday, March 17, Cleveland High School, 3400 S.E. 26th Ave.

• Tuesday, March 18, Central Catholic High School, 2401 S.E. Stark St.
