Southwest In Motion (SWIM)

Southwest In Motion is a short-term refinementprioritization and implementation strategy for planned active transportation investments in Southwest Portland. The final plan will identify a realistic 5-year active transportation action plan that provides basic walking and bicycling connectivity as well as access to transit improvements, where they are needed most.

On December 4, 2019, City Council adopted Southwest in Motion (Resolution No. 37464):

The plan recommendations include:

  • Identification of priority short term walking and biking projects, such as bike lanes, sidewalks, shoulders, and neighborhood greenways.
  • List of short-term crossing enhancements, including enhanced and new crosswalk designs.
  • Discussion of other potential road safety enhancments, including walkable shoulders and traffic calming.
  • Promotion of key programs to support community-initiated projects, such as block parties, community plazas, and urban trails.
  • Policy recommendations to advance walking and biking in Southwest Portland.

SWIM Presentation


The voter approved work plan for Fixing Our Streets includes seed funding to implement the first round of Southwest in Motion recommendations. There are two project categories eligible for funding: $185,000 for Bike Lanes, and $552,000 for Crossing Improvements.  

    2018 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)-Metro

    The Regional Transportation Plan is a blueprint to guide investments for all forms of travel – motor vehicle, transit, bicycle and walking – and the movement of goods and freight throughout the Portland metropolitan region. The plan identifies current and future transportation needs, investments needed to meet those needs and what funds the region expects to have available over the next 25 years to make those investments a reality.
