Your help needed — sign the petition today
The Hillsdale Business and Professional Association has asked for a three-year delay on the Rose Lane Project, which will turn portions of SW Capitol Highway through Hillsdale's business district into bus-and-turn-only lanes, diverting customers away from businesses and adding to congestion on ill-equipped local residential streets.
PBOT admits the $200,00.00 Rose Lane Project will provide no benefit in TriMet transit times at current traffic counts.
The original project was justified based on pre-pandemic traffic counts. With so many people still working from home, it is not clear if traffic will ever reach pre-pandemic counts again.
HBPA and Hillsdale Neighborhood Association have raised serious concerns that the standard Rose Lane Project design will negatively impact both commercial and residential areas.
HBPA and HNA are not against the Rose Lane Project as a whole, but instead are asking PBOT to create a plan that addresses actual needs and fits into the unique layout of Capitol Hwy through Hillsdale.
Sign the petition and join HBPA and the HNA in urging the Portland Bureau of Transportation to delay this project to allow more time to see if traffic and transit ridership return to pre-pandemic levels
and give local businesses a chance to recover from the pandemic.
