The Better Naito Pilot Project was such a success that PBOT and the Oregon Brewers Festival have asked us to do it again! This project will help keep the 85,000 people who come to the Brew Fest, and the people who live, work, and commute downtown safe!
Our team of engineers and volunteers used the feedback from the Pilot Project to design an even BETTER Better Naito for the Brew Fest. The project starts Tuesday July 21st at 6 pm and runs until Monday July 27th until 6 pm. It stretches from SW Salmon all the way to SW Ankeny. The bike lane will be two-way the whole time, and there will be seating too! Check out this article on Bike Portland about our work.
Once again we’ll need your help to get set up! If you’re interested in helping sign up HERE!
A sincere thank you to all the volunteers who turned out early (very early) this morning to set up Better Naito!

Hey Bike Funnists!
Better Block PDX is working with Rose Festival and many great partners to build a safe space for everyone to enjoy our downtown Waterfront!
We have heard that it can be frustrating to attend bike fun events that happen during work hours or late at night…. So, we have a solution! Come help lay the path for people on Naito Parkway at 4am Tomorrow Morning
! We need all hands on deck to make this happen before morning traffic on Naito! We also need folks with cargo bikes or trailers, so please bring them!
Set-up: We meet at Salmon & Naito at 4am, Salmon Street Fountain tomorrow! It may be dark – wear reflective gear if you have it or flashing lights. We hope to bring morning treats, but please eat before you come. From there we will split up into groups to put out cones, signs, and planter boxes. Let us know when you show-up if you came with a cargo bike or truck and would like to help transport.
We also need additional volunteers for data collection of pedestrian and bike counts during the project and ongoing maintenance of the pilot facility and you can sign up for those here:
Bring your friends and help us make a #BetterNaito!
