PBOT will construct the Flanders Neighborhood Greenway project in coordination with the Flanders Crossing Bike and Pedestrian Bridge and the Bureau of Environmental Services' NW Flanders Sewer Capacity Project. Coordinating all three projects will minimize disruptions to the public.

Flanders Crossing Bike and Pedestrian Bridge Project  will construct a new active pedestrian and bicycle bridge over I‐405 at NW Flanders Street. The bridge will connect the NW District and the Pearl District with a safer and more comfortable active crossing over I‐405.

NW Flanders Sewer Capacity Project will replace and upsize 540 feet of 130-year-old public sewer pipes in NW Flanders Street between NW 12th and 14th avenues. The sewer improvements will increase sewer capacity, alleviate basement sewer backups and street flooding, and help protect public health and the environment.
