Crews work on new Third Ave bike lane throughout the weekend

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

This weekend, the city of Portland is making some changes to Third Avenue in downtown Portland.

Crews will be working to create a new bike lane.

Lanes will be closed on Third Ave. from Glisan to Stark overnight Saturday and Sunday to make the changes.

The new bike lane will be wider, and designed to reduce conflicts between bikers and cars.

It will also make it safer for pedestrians to cross the street.

Drivers should expect delays in the area while crews work.
