Project Description

This project was identified and prioritized as a Fixing Our Streets project to complete the sidewalk gap on SE Washington St between SE 80th Ave and SE 82nd Ave.

Phase 1: Sump (in design) 

Install a sump at the intersection of SE Washington St and SE 81st Ave.  The improvements will reduce the risk of combined sewer overflows and prevent flooding by collecting and infiltrating stormwater runoff. To learn more about the impact and function of the sump system, visit Environmental Services Portland's Underground Injection Control (UIC) Facilities Stormwater Permit webpage.

Phase 2: SE Washington St sidewalk (in design)

Construct sidewalk along the south side of SE Washington Street from SE 80th Ave to 82nd Ave and update several curb ramps.  Deconstruct the temporary bus platform on SE Washington St.
