Watch for fun new stencils on bike lanes in Portland
Once upon a time, bike lanes throughout Portland featured artwork of bike riders in all manner of garb and character. Most of these disappeared as roads were re-surfaced, but Portland street maintenance crews have again begun installing fun and creative bike-stencil characters on city streets throughout the metro area.
The ODOT crews are working up these stencils in their spare time with the assistance of local Portland artists Addie Boswell and Damon Eckhoff, according to Diane Dulkins, spokeswoman for the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
“This is what happens when you take pride in the city,” Dulken said. “This creative spirit is what happens.”
In my humble opinion, this is just another example of what makes Portland so great for residents and visitors alike.
