During the construction of Interstate 84 through Sullivan’s gulch, NE Broadway was, for 4 years used as the way to connect from a completed part of the highway, east of Hollywood, to the rest of Portland.  During this time, NE Broadway was widened and converted to be the fast, wide road it is today.  This design, which could have been temporary, was never really considered for changes.

However, a group of active citizens have formed a new group called the Broadway-Weidler Alliance to combat this.  What do you think should be done with the wide streets?  Submit your proposals to arudwick@gmail.com
