is an AROW project:
Community plans have asked for bike
lanes on Holgate for 15 years. Now that they are here, they are
better than ever.
recently, the East
Portland Action Plan
process in 2008 called for more bike access on streets:
striped bike lanes on all major arterials throughout East
Portland; prioritize areas with gaps in the bike network.
It also requested the use of innovative designs:
complete and more well-defined bike system plan for East Portland;
consider/incorporate safety innovations such as divided bike lanes,
"bike boxes", path systems.
Historically, the Lents
Neighborhood Plan of 1995 identified Holgate as a bicycle lane
Striping for bike lanes on Woodstock, Holgate, and Foster
Also in 1995, the Powellhurst-Gilbert
Neighborhood Plan established policies to promote walking and
biking by reducing auto traffic impacts:
Reduce the impact of auto traffic on existing and proposed pedestrian
facilities and bikeways so that people walking and biking will feel
more comfortable using alternative transportation modes.
The Lents Traffic Safety Plan in 1999 recommended reducing
Holgate from 5 lanes to 3, to better accomodate the level of traffic
and serve its function as a neighborhood street.
