Northeast Broadway (and its eastbound couplet NE Weidler) is full of destinations that benefit from customers who shop there, despite poor bicycle access. Because many of these customers tend to ride on quiet nearby NE Tillamook Street, they do not always notice new businesses open, “SALE” signs in windows, and other business advertisements. The 2.5-mile NE Broadway/Weidler couplet between the Broadway Bridge and the Hollywood District is one of the east side’s most frequented retail corridors. Building physically separated cycle tracks, with dedicated signals on both streets, will finally make this corridor a safe and popular destination for everyone and will increase visibility of businesses in the neighborhood.
STATUS We are currently working with local businesses and neighbors to better understand Broadway’s needs and to discuss potential solutions. Have any opinions on the matter? Want to help the BTA with outreach? Contact us!
