Bridge Ave has very narrow shoulders, debris and other hazards, and high traffic volumes. There are no other alternatives for cyclists accessing the St John's Bridge from Hwy 30 or Germantown Road. Bike lanes that run the full length of Bridge Ave are needed.
N Central Street and N Houghton each has a Neighborhood Greenway designation by the City of Portland. Both facilities generally run parallel to Lombard for several miles, serving to connect St. Johns with the rest of Portland. There is not a bicycle facility to bridge the gap between the two sections. The closest facility is this bridge and does not adequate or safe bicycle facilities.
Dangerous blind corner. Neighboring property owner has a row of hedges along their property line. This creates a blind corner. People traveling southbound can not see someone headed northbound and vise versa. People traveling southbound heading up to the I-205 pedestrian bridge cross the northbound "lane" of the 205 multiuse path creating a dangerous conflict point. Having the property owner remove the hedges, or installing two convex mirrors would help eliminate the dangerous blind corner and would improve the safety of all users.
The intersection of Lombard and Ida has enough pedestrian crossings and automobile movement to warrant improvements. Children from Roosevelt High School frequently cross Lombard before/after school hours and during lunch to reach the McDonalds, Fred Meyers, and take transit to/from school.
Dangerous blind corner caused by sound blocking wall. Lowering the sound wall to half it's normal height for 10 feet or using some sort of clear wall for 10 feet would provide a large enough line of sight to eliminate the dangerous blind corner.
This stretch of road does not meet bicycle facility standards. There are no bicycle facilities, similar to every other part of Lombard under ODOT's jurisdiction. This is possibly an error from unconfirmed plans to install crosswalks at Tyler and Polk.
Please provide some sort of bicycle infrastructure on E Burnside between 81st Ave and 83rd Ave. Their is a bicycle lane on both sides of the intersection with 82nd Ave, but it is removed within one block of the intersection. The left hand turn lanes claim the space that was used for the bike lanes. I realize removing the left hand turn lanes is probably not going to happen. Please at least add sharrows to indicate to both people in cars and people on bicycles, that people riding bicycles should be taking the entire lane in this section. I am routinely yelled at and harassed when I take the lane for the one block required before the bike lane begins again.
St John's Bridge should be 1 auto lane in each direction and 1 buffered bike lane in each direction. The sharrows are not working and this is a scarry place to get across the river, even on the sidewalks.
turning left from southbound Skyline/Scholls Ferry to the path on Humphrey is fraught with danger. EVEN WHEN the left turn lane has the green, northbound Scholls Ferry traffic turning right onto the eastbound HWY 26 on ramp do not stop and look for left-ish turning cyclists accessing the path.
There are not enough easy connections to/from the esplanade into downtown streets. I recently was coming back from Old Town and tried to hop onto the esplanade but only found stairs! Grass too wet, so had to dismount, step down stairs, remount. Silly. Turn some of those sets of stairs into ramps. It will help with ADA, senior, walk...and BIKE access!
This is a very difficult segment to navigate on a bicycle. The right shoulder narrows and eventually vanishes just as another lane of traffic joins from the right. The result is that cyclists who have been riding on the wide shoulder find themselves stranded between two very active lanes of traffic. Due to the ramp configuration, visibility to the right is very limited until one actually arrives at the merge point.
There is a dearth of routes N-S from NE to SE Portland. Look at your map. There was not even a colored line to click on to enter a comment about this vicinity, from 99E all the way to Route 213! We need something like NE 33rd to be a main bike route to SE.
The Naito-Barbur split is very difficult to navigate by bike during rush hour. A crosswalk is present, but the line of cars backed up in the right for the Ross Island Bridge makes it difficult or impossible for cars in the left lane to see pedestrians or bicycles waiting to cross. The alternative is to merge over to the left prior to the split, but this requires crossing 1-2 lanes of 35 MPH traffic.
The bike lanes for this highway are too narrow and are barely wider than the storm grates that a cyclist must traverse. It puts the rider too close to 45+mph traffic. There re also disconnects which make it hard to use this path to reach the Cully cycle track or the I-205 multi-use path.
Need bicycle access across Lombard at Delaware neighborhood Greenway. This neighborhood greenway connects Overlook and Arbor Lodge to Kenton and Portsmouth. More importantly this crossing is necessary for access to Chief Joseph Elementary and the Portland Village School.
The entire length of H 282 is dangerous for cyclists. Narro to none as far as sholders go. And, usually covered with lots of gravel.
However, you seem to have missed the most dangerous road for riders in Hood River County. All of H 281 from the city of Hood River to MP 14 in both directions.
Limited and broken shoulders that are always full of gravel
This what should be fixed as a top priority.
the crossing at Windmaster is OK. The problem is that there is a very narrow and poorly maintained area to ride outside of the fog line heading North. The entire stretch from MP 5 10 3 is dangerous for cyclists.
Also, the north bound traffic at Windmaster that splits to the right instead of continuing straight onto Indian Creek does not have allow cyclists to go straight without a dangerous merge.
Daily bike commuter: I hate the Steel Bridge upper deck path on entire south side of bridge - I only use the upper when the lower deck is closed. The entire passage is much too narrow, and riding on the steel plating of the lift span is bad.
