Church Street and other Newsbits

Sunday: Yeah, so it was on a parking lot - but still!
Now that the transit mall is open again, the City has removed temporary markings and restored Church Street to three travel lanes.

Now that the bus mall is open, do we really need all three lanes?
But the section seemed to function alright with just two travel lanes - we managed just fine with a road diet!

The temporary configuration during construction
The adopted plan in the Downtown Mobility Study is for just two lanes on Church Street.  The City missed an opportunity here to shift the paint and to install a temporary bike lane!

Even without making it permanent,
the City might have tried
a set of provisional markings on Church Street
CAN-DO on the Park Parcel

Tomorrow the 15th, the downtown neighborhood association, CAN-DO, meets and on the agenda is the start of a conversation about a plan for the Park Parcel at Boise and Riverfront Park.

It's a blank slate!

State Bike/Ped Plan Update

Late last year you might remember ODOT announced the Policy Advisory Committee for the process to update the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, which dates back a ways. (Some early thoughts on the committee and composition here.)

They will be meeting Tuesday afternoon to discuss the draft vision and preliminary goals.

The Committee meets 1pm to 4pm on Tuesday the 15th at the Chemeketa Center for Business and Industry, 626 High Street NE, Rm 115.
