Has anyone figured out what the city are doing on NE Multnomah through the Lloyd District yet?

Yay!

I was nearly hit by a Multnomah County van while in one of those lanes (before they painted it). Good times.

Hey, let's talk about bikes!

We'll see if drivers give more of a shit. When I was on the #16 last Wednesday, headed to city hall, I watched some generic sedan enjoy a lazy two-block run in the green paint on Oak.

Hopefully that green paint is non-skid. Otherwise, oopsie.

ujfoyt: From BikePortland.org: "According to PBOT, the new paint is called HOTLINE® Fast Dry Latex Traffic Marking Paint with a skid-resistant agent additive known as "Sharkgrip." They bought it from Sherwin-Williams Co. for $16,697.20 (enough for 40,000 square feet of pavement). PBOT plans to use this same paint on the NE Multnomah project."

@Drunk - Gah! I meant coupled east-west lanes. I'm gonna add in that "coupled" right now. Jefferson is coupled for only two blocks with the bike lane running the other way on Madison.
