I got an email from another colleague regarding the experience converting a 4-lane to 3-lane conversion on NE 12th Avenue. I could spend a lot of time to describe it or I could summarize blog posts that BikePortland.org had on the subject in chronological order with better reporting than I could accomplish at home in the evenings after work.
Pushback on the Plans - are signals enough? - April 28th: This was the time I got involved. There was some earlier work on the concepts, but I hadn't done a whole lot of new information.
Implementation Notice - June 2nd: PBOT implemented the signal changes with some striping modifications before the school year ended.
Moving Forward with Concerns - June 16th: A second meeting was held to discuss initial results.
Consensus with the Stakeholders! - September 29 : We studied the after when school was back in session to do a reasonable comparison.
Implementation pictorial: The completed project, we still have a few things to modify and we committed to evaluate the after before the end of the year. We haven't had any complaints that we were not able to address.
