News Article
Construction will start in June

The city’s Chief Procurement Officer will present the Procurement Report for the SW Capitol Highway: Multnomah Village – West Portland project at City Council on Wednesday, May 12, during the 9:30am session. (Stream live or watch archived video here.) This action officially accepts the construction bid and allows the city to execute the contract and begin construction work on this major partnership between the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), Bureau of Environmental Services (BES), and Portland Water Bureau (PWB). The lowest responsive bidder was Landis and Landis Construction LLC of Marylhurst, Oregon, with a bid price of $13,955,060.20. PBOT will be the contract owner, and the contract cost will be shared by PBOT, BES, and PWB.

After contract execution, Landis and Landis will coordinate with PBOT, BES and PWB on a number of document submittals – such as schedules, safety plans, and traffic control plans – before breaking ground sometime in June. Also during this period, PBOT will host two online open houses and send out a newsletter, all focused on construction. One open house will be self-guided and available for several weeks on the project website. The other open house will be live on Zoom, offering the opportunity to ask questions. We will nail down the dates for these events once we have the contractor’s proposed construction schedule.

We now have a single point-of-contact e-mail address for the project, which helps the project team better respond to your questions and concerns during construction. It is: We are also working on a project-specific phone hotline.

We will have a lot more to share in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
