Dear Neighbors,

We hope this email finds you well.

Like many organizations and businesses, the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s (PBOT) revenue has been impacted by COVID-19. Due to the impact, the SW Multnomah Blvd / Garden Home Road Intersection Safety Project has been put on hold until more funding can be secured. Unfortunately, the delay of this project is not unique, as many other PBOT projects across the city have either been rescheduled, delayed, or cancelled altogether as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

With that said, the SW Multnomah Blvd / Garden Home Road Intersection Safety Project is still a priority here at PBOT. This project seeks to improve the intersection of SW Multnomah Boulevard, Garden Home Road and 69th Avenue to reduce crashes, improve sight distance, address queueing issues, and provide safer, more comfortable pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

As we know more, we will provide updates on this project’s website which can be found here.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this public health emergency.
