Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R), in partnership with Metro, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) as well as many community partners, is working to create a safe path for bicycles and pedestrians to cross Columbia Boulevard at Chimney Park.
Sewer and Stormwater
Nature patch work was completed in February 2021. Rain garden and green street planter design is in progress and will continue through Fall 2021. Construction of the rain gardens and green street planters is currently scheduled to begin February 2022.
Environmental Services and Portland Parks & Recreation are collaborating on a project to build nature patches and rain gardens to manage stormwater in Irving Park. The project will help prevent nearby flooding, sewer basement backups, and sewage overflows into the Willamette River during storms.
