One of the worst crossings in all of Portland. Need a ped island and RFB crosswalk at NE 97th & Glisan, shorter left-turn lane to SB freeway for cars. Wider sidewalks along Glisan, both sides. The north-south signals should have a pedestrian priority for 10+ seconds before car signal. Consider underpass for Glisan, like at Division.
The 205 MUP crossings at Stark & Washington are too narrow for bikes, especially if two or more bikes are going in opposite directions. Need to double the sidewalk and ramp widths on Taco Bell block, and add a sharper corner for the off-ramp from 205 at Stark St.
The "bike lane" (subpar though it may be) on SE Milwaukie/12th drops off at the intersection with Powell, then picks right back up on the other side. Most riders going south ride along the crosswalk (conflict with pedestrians) while those going north either have to cross to the other side of the road, then cross back over to ride in a crosswalk, otherwise they have to mingle with relatively high-speed, high-volume traffic (very uncomfortable).
If it meets standard, we should consider raising the standards here - the discomfort level along 99E is high due to the speed to traffic. Has ODOT considered plastic pylons to separate the lane with more distinction?
Bike facilities along Hwy 43 through Lake Oswego do not exist. The outside lanes, though wider, do not accommodate bike and vehicle traffic well. Bus stops, driveways, railroads, and storm drains are difficult for bicyclists to navigate. An off-roadway route that continues to Portland or across to Milwaukie would benefit riders most.
There are signed bike lanes leading to nowhere in this area - the southbound lane becomes a shoulder and eventually narrows to almost nothing when passing downtown OC. This is a dangerous situation that should be rectified as soon as possible.
Intersection needs a loop detector for bikes waiting on Mill, or a more easily triggered bike / ped crossing button. Right now this intersection requires riders to dismount and enter the sidewalk to access the ped crossing button.
