Lincoln St Bicycle Blvd Traffic and Bus Calming
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.
