What’s happening now?

We are currently at a 60% design plans. PBOT is actively value engineering the design to fit within the current project budget.  We expect construction to begin in 2024. 

Project Background

SE Foster Rd and SE Woodstock Blvd, in the eastern half of Lents Town Center (east of I-205), are in a state of disrepair and require paving. Foster and Woodstock are also on the High Crash Network, and improving safety for all commuters and pedestrians is a high priority.

To improve safety, this project will reduce conflicts between people walking, bicycling, and driving by providing greater separation between these road users. The project will also construct enhanced pedestrian crossings along the corridor as identified in the adopted East Portland in Motion Plan. This will allow people to safely cross the street to access bus stops, businesses and other destinations.

Finally, the project will include much needed ADA upgrades to corner curb ramps to improve accessibility along the corridor.
