What’s happening now?

SW 35th Avenue between SW Ridge Drive and SW Arnold Street is in the design phase. Work will be completed by PBOT’s Maintenance Operations crews in Spring 2021. Construction was originally planned for Spring 2020, but was delayed because of the SW Boones Ferry Bridge and Restoration Project, which will be detouring vehicle traffic onto SW 35th.

Project Background 

This project was first identified in the Portland Bike Plan for 2030 (created in 2010) and was prioritized for implementation in the Southwest in Motion plan for active transportation projects in Southwest Portland.
