N Williams/N Vancouver Streetscape

Calling all helmetheads - tired of risking your life in the grisly automobile lane in order to pass someone on your way home from work?  We know what you're thinking - the N Williams/N Vancouver corridor has the potential to be one of the coolest bike commuter stretches in Portland.  We think so too!  Heck, we could set a precedent that cities across the nation will follow.

Did you know that over 3,000 commuters ride the N Williams/N Vancouver corridor daily?

Did you know that the City's Department of Transportation thinks an accident involving a cyclist here is imminent?  

Did you know studies are being done to look into widening the bike lane on N Williams?  That there has even been talk of de-coupling the two one-way streets?

What do you think? 

We've come up with a few ideas, but we need your input and support!

Please, make a comment on this post and let us know your thoughts!  (And let us know if you live in the neighborhood!)

Siteworks Design|Build would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to those who contributed time, art, foodstuff, and energy to the Hands on for Haiti benefit on April 1st, 2010.  With your help we raised over $15,000 for Mercy Corps!  It takes only 20 cents a day to feed a person in Haiti, meaning we raised enough to feed over 75,000 people!  Great job! We would not have been able to do it without you.  Thank you again for your generosity.  

As you can see from our pictures...a good time was had by all!
