Michigan Ave bike boulevard saved! PCC approves underground parking garage –

Photos and Story by

Portland Community College has approved plans for a new parking garage at their Cascade campus in North Portland — and it won’t be the four-story, $9 million structurethat many people (including myself) were concerned about due to its potential impacts on the future Michigan Ave bike boulevard.

Cascade Campus is moving forward with Option A3 (alternate), building a new academic building and student center with underground parking.

Instead, PCC announced today that a proposal for an underground parking facility on N. Jessup between N. Albina and Mississippi was approved in late December and they’re “going forward with it.”
