OVERVIEW

As quadrants go, Northwest Portland is like the sun – dense, shiny and hard for people to bike through. But not for long!

The speakers will cover:

  • the NW 20s Neighborhood Greenway;
  • the NW Flanders Bridge & Neighborhood Greenway; 
  • the NW in Motion initiative;
  • the extension of TriMet Line 24; and
  • other projects in progress.

Come and prep for the NW Transportation Open House that same day (Thurs, Nov 15th from 5-7 pm at Chown Hardware, 1605 NW Everett St), or come hear what’s happening if you can’t make the evening event.
