Here in Portland we have plenty of streets, especially downtown that could use a road diet. Especially since the City has allocated funds for a bike share program. I like how this system lessens car speedsters and encourages people to walk and ride their bikes. Hopefully the word will get out that this IS what we want in our communities, a more livable landscape! SouthEast Portland and NorthEast Portland tend to be more bicycle friendly parts of the city and encourage transformation of their streets to make room for more bicycles in general. Southwest Portland has a nice MUP and many bike lanes but sadly no road diets to speak of!
