a very brief note about speed bumps going in on NE 21st in the Englewood neighborhood. The project grew slightly to embrace bumps on Evergreen at the same time.
The bumps are going in this week, it turns out.
In any event, projects like this might also consider the installation of sharrows and a 20mph speed limit. You may recall HB 3150, which created the 20mph designation. Portland is using it extensively and it could be a tool in Salem neighborhoods for traffic calming.
Neighbor complaints about car speeds were driving this installation, as I understand it. At some point, hopefully, in some places we'll turn from a negative, complaint-driven process to a pro-active process, making things easier for people who bike. It will be great to see the City install traffic calming to benefit people who bike before there's a documented pattern of complaints about people in cars.
Further north, a new dental clinic just off Lancaster is going in.
Interestingly, another recent dental clinic out south also has gables, but it is set back and the parking lot fronts the street.
