Last year I called out the Broadway/Flint/Wheeler intersection as the outstanding presentation in the Traffic and Transportation class.
The realization of this effort, in the form of a PBOT project design, is now on the “150% list” for funding in ODOT’s STIP process.
The final selection of funded projects will occur shortly. I’m told the deadline for submitting comments is June 30.
I hope you’ll join me in sending supportive comments:

In the words of class presenter Betsy Reese:
“This is a project that will save life and limb of pedestrians and bicyclists and improve traffic flow for all modes. All modes of traffic – bike, pedestrian and motor vehicle – from all of N, NE, Central Eastside Portland, and I-5, coming in and out of our neighborhood or going through to get to downtown – need this fix.”
