Thanks, Jonathan! I have lens envy 😉 I’ve been snapping photos of the bridge under construction on my photo walks. I’m eager to walk over it soon.
Relatedly, I’m going to make a plug for the new Go Lloyd Mobility Committee. I know the Blumenauer bridge is one area of focus for our committee. I know Eco Lloyd, who are also participating in the new committee, are also interested stakeholders.
I was an active volunteer on the Go Lloyd (Lloyd TMA) Pedestrian Committee for many years when I worked in the Lloyd District at BPA and KPNW. Last month, I joined the new mobility committee. We had our first kick-off meeting in May and are scheduled to meet again (virtually) on June 14th.
This past Tuesday, we held a “Trash Mob” cleanup event in Holladay Park. Thanks to SOLVE for the cleanup equipment and supplies.
If anyone is interested in joining our committee and attending our next meeting, you can find the details on these two pages.
Here is a description from the first link:
“Go Lloyd’s Mobility Committee helps to make biking and walking in Lloyd safe, fun, convenient, and easy. We work to install and improve bicycle infrastructure, and host numerous free events to encourage people to bike and walk. The Committee provides input on Go Lloyd’s programs and activities, and frequently partners with the City of Portland to improve conditions for cycling and walking in Lloyd. Our projects focus on safety, health, and bikeable/walkable infrastructure. Join us each month for an open, informal discussion and learn how you can help take action.”
