Shattuck Road Speed Humps
On Wednesday night about 19 people attended the BNA meeting. Mike Pullen from Multnomah County gave a presentation about the speed on Shattuck Road between SW Patton Road and SW Windsor Court.

The county conducted a speed study on SW Shattuck, and the study shows that there is a speeding problem. The County Sheriff ‘s Office was notified about speeding, since they are the local law enforcement agency responsible for this road.

According to Multnomah County design standards, this section of Shattuck Road qualifies for speed humps because it is classified as a neighborhood collector street, has a 35 (or less) MPH speed limit, current traffic speed in the 85 th percentile is between 30 MPH and 45 MPH and traffic volume less than 4,000 average daily trips.

The proposal would install four speed cushions (or humps). The humps would have gaps to allow emergency vehicles to get through, since Shattuck is an emergency route. There would be warning signs 100 feet from the first and last hump. Vegetation on west side of Shattuck near Downs View Court would be trimmed to improve visibility.

If proposal moves ahead, the speed humps would be installed in summer 2019. A decision will be made this spring on whether or not to install the speed humps, based in part on public comments received.

Public comment should be submitted in writing by March 1, 2019 to:
