SE 155th Avenue & Main Street / Millmain Drive Local Improvement District

Transportation
Partially Open While Under Construction
This Local Improvement District (LID) will be constructed adjacent to Parklane Park. Portland Parks and Recreation (PP&R) will be using Parks System Development Charge (SDC) funds for their participation in the LID. This project will improve access to the park and build a multimodal path.
Construction in April 2024

About the project

The LID will construct a cul-de-sac at the south end of SE 155th Ave on property PP&R will dedicate as right-of-way (ROW) and reconstruct the north side of SE Main Street and SE Millmain Drive along Parklane Park’s frontage to reduce the street width and incorporate an elevated multi-modal pathway in conjunction with PP&R’s Parklane Park project.

The SE 155th Ave cul-de-sac is a requirement for fire turnaround and will also provide a drop off and pedestrian access into the park.  The Main-Millmain two-way bikeway and pedestrian path will enhance the recreational experience along the park’s southern frontages by providing a safe bike and pedestrian path to access the park and to provide an additional transportation and recreational pathway in addition to the park’s paths.

What's happening now?

PBOT has hired a contractor and construction will begin in April 2024. 

What to expect during construction

Construction for this project is tentatively scheduled to begin in late April and will continue through the end of August 2024. If there are unforeseen issues, construction may extend slightly longer. In order to construct the multi-use pathway, crews will need to conduct work in the roadway on SE Main Street and SE Millmain Drive. Both SE Main Street and SE Millmain Drive will be temporarily converted into single lane, one-way streets headed eastbound along the Parklane Park frontage. 

Project Funding

This project is funded using a Local Improvement District with Portland Parks and Recreation. The bureau is using Parks System Development Charges to fund their participation in the project. Adjacent property owners will not be contributing to the LID.
