In the future, people walking, biking, and driving will be able to use a new connection over I-5 connecting N Hancock and N Dixon. Currently there are few east-west connections over I-5 in the area. The Hancock-Dixon Crossing was recommended by the community as a new and improved east-west connection for people to cross I-5 while avoiding the busy Broadway and Weidler intersections at Vancouver and Williams, or to access current or future destinations in Lower Albina.
This new crossing will include space for separated bicycle and pedestrian paths, creating a safe and more connected travel option for everyone. It is aligned to Central City policies to develop and implement strategies to lessen the impact of freeways and other transportation systems on neighborhood continuity including capping, burying or other innovative approaches.
