Portland Quarantine: Closing 100 miles of streets with barrel blocks

To better enforce the quarantine the City of Portland is instilling road blocks
Taxpayers Association of Oregon


City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly has instituted a massive road blocking project in Portland by erecting 80 barrels through-out city streets and close of 100 miles of street as a way to force people to walk and bike and provide them more room during the outbreak.   It appears that “designated delivery zones” will be set-up as the road blocking may impede delivery of goods to homes.

Part of the project is to also slow down traffic.

This comes at a time when Portland freeway road traffic is down by nearly 50%.

This comes to a city where they have over 300 miles of bicycle infrastructure/paths having earned the the most bike friendly in the world.
