Lincoln St Bicycle Blvd Traffic and Bus Calming

63 Signatures Goal: 100

This petition is to support traffic calming measures along the Lincoln St Bicycle Boulevard between SE 52nd and SE 60th, including the relocation of some or all of the Trimet #71 Bus line. These measures will create a more family friendly Bicycle Boulevard for the entire Mt Tabor and surrounding area. Some issue these devices will help solve are: 1) Bring inline with remaining Lincoln St Bicycle Boulevard to the West 2) Slow vehicle speeds and reduce volumes on Bicycle Boulevard 3) Help reduce danger to bicyclist at 52nd and Lincoln 4) Relocate buses off Bicycle Boulevard to make more inviting for families and cyclists and to reduce danger at intersection of 52nd and Lincoln. 5) Create a true "Safe Routes to Schools" street Trimet #71 Bus Line The current proposal by Trimet would relocate the Northbound #71 bus to Division and 60th, while keeping the Southbound #71 on Lincoln and 52nd. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance is supporting this initiative and is quoted as saying, “For Lincoln St to be at its best as a family-friendly Bicycle Boulevard, bus traffic ought to be eliminated.” Read more about the issues and discussion in the fact sheet and group page to the right.

    Living on Lincoln street I regularly see close calls between buses, cars, pedestrians, and cyclists. There are just too many opportunities for a terrible collision. Also, I rarely see more than one person at the stops between 60th & 52nd so it doesn't appear that many are really accessing the bus on this stretch of the route.

    I know many children and adults who bike on Lincoln going to school or work and trying to maneuver around cars and buses especially at the intersection of Lincoln and 52nd and at 60th where the bus has to move into the on coming traffic lane - this bound to end badly for a bicyclist or pedestrian.

    I think it makes the most sense to just continue the bus on 60th and not have it drop down at all until Division on its way South, but I obviously have a biased viewpoint

    We want our children to start biking to school by themselves, but have concerns about them crossing over Lincoln St. at 52nd ave. It is a very dangerous intersection and the only viable option for a direct route.
