There needs to be a shared use path between the Willamette River in Wilsonville and Hwy 217 so people can commute and recreate between Wilsonville and Tigard with Tualatin residents being able to travel in both directions.
Vastly improved bike and ped facilities are need to create a safe way to cross the Nyberg St. overpass and all the on and off ramps when travelling both east and westbound. Eastbound is especially unsafe, but both expose bikes and peds to a lot of fast-moving traffic.
There needs to be a shared use pathway from HWY 99 to Sherwood to people, including children and families, can safely get to the national wildlife refuge as well as commuting and recreation between Sherwood, Tualatin, and Tigard.
There is no accommodation for bicycles traveling northbound on Naito Pkwy. There is the danger of a right hook by a motorist as you pass the on ramp to the Steel Bridge, and there is no bike lane on Naito when passing under the bridge ramps.
I find it confusing traveling westbound on Couch at SB-405/16th - as there is a "Do Not Enter - Except Bicycles" sign and a bike lane across the street, but the traffic signal is a Left Turn Signal with no indication when bikes can go. People run the light here. I strongly suggest a bike signal here.
This road is part of an Oregon Scenic Bikeway, but is high-speed, high-traffic, and has a very limited shoulder. Please add signage to alert drivers to the presence of cyclists and consistent road markings so that drivers know they have to share the road.
This segment of Barbur needs a road diet and physically buffered bike facilities. ODOT has prioritized one mode's convenience over the safety of all other modes for years. Why is that? A very minor delay in vehicle traffic would make the road safer for ALL modes while making it a reasonable and attractive option for cyclists.
The bike lane needs to be swept more often. Broken glass, splintered car parts, gravel, etc. makes it difficult to cycle safely, but the high speeds of the adjacent lanes make it unsafe to leave the bike lane to avoid the debris.
There are so few driveways along Highway 30, and the speed difference between car/truck traffic and bicyclists is so great - this would be such an excellent facility to add some sort of barrier between the bike lane and the adjacent car lane. Even something simple like a concrete curb or a rubber bumper strip would make a huge difference. But it's crazy to set this up as a bike route under current conditions. So dangerous.
Pedestrian bridge here! Currently cyclists have to go all they way down to Bryant for a safe choice to cross I-5, unless they want to brave the unpleasant Lombard crossing. Either way, a long distance out of the way to get to anything north of Lombard.
This section of Lombard, which runs right through a residential neighborhood, would be a great candidate for a road diet. One lane in each direction and a center turn lane would make this street feel less like a freeway.
This intersection, with the two freeway on-ramps, needs a dedicated bicycle facility. Cars are focused on getting onto the highway and do not expect non-car users to be using this section of roadway. The I-5 crossing is dangerous. If I lived one street to the east of the intersection, I would not bike with my child to get to the grocery store right on the other side of the bridge. It's a barrier.
This bridge is a massive hazard to any bicyclist wanting to ride into SW Portland from Downtown. I avoid it at all costs and would recommend much more challenging alternatives to anyone who asked due to the significantly increased risk of severe injury or death. The inability of ODOT to find a solution that does not involve a vulnerable road user taking an extreme risk with their life is incredibly disappointing. Suggesting that a bicycle going uphill merge with traffic moving at 45+ MPH is never going to make sense.
Please add some bike crossings along here to get across Powell. The lack of them basically makes it so I can't/won't ride south of Powell because it's so terrifying to figure out how to get across that highway.
