Location Description
SE Stark and SE Washington Streets

Overview

The Stark/Washington couplet is one of the major business hubs in Gateway, but is currently very auto oriented and sees high rates of crashes, with three to four lanes in each direction, difficult pedestrian crossings, and narrow sidewalks and bike lanes. This project will transform this area into a more pedestrian, bike, and transit-oriented hub for East Portland, with safety improvements ranging from protected bike lanes to bus lanes and transit islands to enhanced crossings.

This is a Vision Zero project on a High Crash Corridor and serves a high equity need. This project was also prioritized in the Growing Transit Communities Plan, adopted in 2017.

This project is funded through a Metro Regional Flexible Fund Allocation grant, Transportation System Development Charges and Fixing our Streets funds.
