Hillsdale Business & Professional Association started this petition to Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty

The Hillsdale Business and Professional Association and Hillsdale Neighborhood Association are asking the Portland Bureau of Transportation 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.

The Issues:

  • PBOT admits the 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 HNA have serious concerns that the standard Rose Lane Project design will negatively impact both commercial and residential areas.

Please consider signing the petition to urge 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 last two years of challenging times.
