What's happening now?

Major work is complete. 

Contractors working for the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) are completing final tasks, including fencing, adjustments to the intersection at N Portland Rd., and placement of concrete barriers on the west end of the street to reinforce parking restrictions.

Businesses remain accessible during construction unless otherwise notified.

Schedule

  • Summer 2023: Utility work and southern half of road to be rebuilt (complete)
  • Winter 2023-24: Construction continues as weather allows on north side driveways, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and stormwater planters (complete)
  • Spring 2024: Northern half of roadway to be rebuilt (complete)
  • Completion expected in summer 2024 (underway)

Plants will be placed in stormwater planters in Fall 2025 to increase their success rate. Our contractor will continue to water the new street trees into 2026 to support establishment; trees that fail to thrive during this period will be replaced.

Components

  • 3,210 square feet of stormwater drainage facilities with 26,000 gallons of capacity to reduce flooding and protect the environment
  • New sidewalk (5 to 6 feet wide) on the north side of the street
  • 45 additional street trees with two-year establishment period

History

  • Local Improvement District formed by Portland City Council on August 30, 2017
