Portland shuts down a car lane to make room for more cyclists

Clif Bar and People for Bikes both partially funded the experiment. During the last three days of the project, June 2-5, the 15-foot bike path will be extended a few blocks farther north to create a “bi-directional” bike lane as a test to fill in a gap in Portland’s network of bike paths. During the test, bluetooth sensors will count cyclists, walkers and cars. “If officials decide to pursue permanent changes to Naito, they’ll have the data to support their decision,” said Jennifer Dill, Transportation Research and Education Center director, in a release regarding #BetterNaito.
