(Nov. 12, 2019) Yesterday, the Portland Bureau of  Transportation's (PBOT) contractor successfully completed paving the northbound lanes of N Denver Avenue from Lombard to Watts streets. This completes the paving phase of this project and N Denver Avenue is now permanently back open in both directions.

With the paving complete, both lanes of travel are now open to pedestrians and people biking and driving. The final stage of the project is striping and signage. Restriping this segment will allow for curb-tight parking and buffered bike lanes per the plan shared with the neighborhood in December of 2018. The striping is currently scheduled for this Thursday, Nov. 14. This work is weather-dependent, and the schedule may change.

Curious what the final street will look like? Take a closer look on the project website.

Do you live on N Denver Avenue and have specific questions about your property frontage? Please call Project Manager Geren Shankar at 503-823-4793.

PBOT greatly appreciates the patience and understanding of nearby residents and businesses as we work to wrap up this construction project.

Thank you Kenton neighborhood businesses for your patience during construction!

About Fixing Our Streets:

In May 2016, Portland voters put their trust in the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) when they approved Measure 26-173, a new 10-cent gas tax for fixing our streets and making them safer. This was the first local funding source in the city’s history dedicated exclusively to the city’s transportation needs. With these funds, PBOT has been working hard to deliver for Portland. Under the banner of Fixing Our Streets, PBOT manages every project funded by these taxes to maintain a safe and reliable transportation system for everyone.
